Department of Neighborhoods: Improving Quality of Life

HOUSTON - The City of Houston Department of Neighborhoods offers a wide range of services to improve quality of life for Houstonians.  Our services include inspections and code enforcement to reduce blight and make neighborhoods cleaner and safer.  We assist citizens to help resolve neighborhood concerns and connect them to city services.  We reach out to youth through programs designed to prevent juvenile delinquency and gang involvement and promote education, civic leadership and community service.  We facilitate the civic, economic and cultural integration of our diverse immigrant and refugee communities through special events and community partnerships.  Learn more about our programs and services and how you can help make Houston a great place to call home.  Visit us at
