Neighborhood Organizations

Are you interested in getting more involved in your neighborhood? Neighborhood organizations and other civic groups are a key part of the social fabric of Cambridge. These groups are independent from the City of Cambridge and are often run by volunteers. They provide venues for community members to discuss local topics, collaborate to advance causes, and connect with their neighbors.

Is your group missing or does your organization's information need to be updated? Please contact the Community Planning Division at
