Newton Neighbors: Welcoming Newton & Newton Neighbors Helping Neighbors 

Our mission is to facilitate community engagement, collective action, and access to resources and supports for all people who live, work, pray, play and/or learn in Newton, MA. We do this by mobilizing volunteers and building connections between neighbors, organizations, and communities.

Newton Neighbors grew out of two complimentary projects aimed at building community and connections in Newton, MA. 

Welcoming Newton is a grassroots effort to support newcomers to our city while also furthering the engagement of all residents in all things related to life in Newton.


  • Our goal is to help everyone who moves to Newton have the information and connections they need to feel a part of and get the most out of our community.
