East Point Breeze Neighbors (EPBN) is a non-profit civic organization established in 2007 serving residents, owners, and businesses in the Point Breeze area of South Philadelphia west of Broad St. to 18th St. and south of Washington Ave. to Passyunk Ave. In 2016 the organization changed its name from Newbold Neighbors Association (NNA).

EPBN strives to engage residents, support sustainable development, promote local businesses, and strengthen our community through clean streets, greening efforts, public safety, planning, zoning, and outreach.

We welcome all residents, property owners, and business owners to attend our general meetings, get involved with our committees, or help out at our community events.
