The Near East Side Community Organization (NESCO) is a 501c3 umbrella organization on the near east side of Indianapolis with a deep history. NESCO engages near eastsiders to work toward the safety and betterment of neighborhoods. The organization holds an annual Congress with a theme and this year it is "Empowering and Envisioning our Future." On Saturday, February 25th from 8am-noon you can be a part of this meeting and have some fun too. There is a pitch-in breakfast and a silent auction. NESCO invites you to come, bring your ideas, engage with neighbors and get up to date on all the latest happenings in the NESCO neighborhoods.

The vision for the Near Eastside is to work together and make the neighborhoods "a place we are proud to call home." The neighborhoods listed below are those served by NESCO and if you live in one of them you might have some interest in the congress.
