The Neighbourhood
Outreach & Watch Network

Born out of research that began in 2014 & gatherings first held in 2019, we help neighbours & volunteer-based outreach & watch patrol groups work more closely together using GPS mapping, push notifications, & other mobile technology to support grassroots efforts toward safer, healthier, & thriving communities. Please join us as we unite communities around rethinking the challenges we face in more holistic ways, stimulating innovation, and breaking down barriers to the best possible outcomes for our neighbours.


The Respond NOW
Community Development Web App

Coming Soon!

“As we’re all aware, police services have their hands full. The Respond NOW app is being designed to direct community resources & supports to non-emergency & crime prevention causes. As a small business owner, I see great value in this cause — By coming together, we can all work toward creating safer neighbourhoods for our staff, families, & friends. This organization has provided invaluable assistance around our retail location in St. James, Winnipeg. Please take a look at this fundraiser, & lend a hand, if possible!”
