Sullivan’s Gulch is the neighborhood in Northeast Portland between I-84 ("the gulch") and NE Broadway St. and from NE 15th to 33rd Ave. We're named after Timothy Sullivan, an early farmer in the area, who settled his donation land claim on January 27, 1851. The Sullivan’s Gulch Neighborhood Association works to make our neighborhood more livable through various committees, information and referral. Meetings are open to all.

Neighbor to Neighbor can help make the Gulch a little safer and more neighborly
Would you like to get better acquainted with your neighbors?
Would you like to make your block a little safer?
The SGNA Neighbor to Neighbor program organizes a volunteer on each block to contact everyone else on their block to collect names and phone numbers. Then the coordinator shares the information back with everyone who agrees to participate. If you need help with something or if you are able to help, just tell the Block Coordinator and they will make a connection with someone willing to help. Or neighbors can organize with each other directly with their block phone list. There’s no big database, the information stays with the block coordinator. (Of course, we understand that not everyone will want to share their phone number or want to participate. That’s fine; it’s completely voluntary.)
If you'd like to be a Block Coordinator, we’ll provide you with introductory letters and survey form, and a form to record and share the results with your neighbors. Use the map below to identify the block or area you’d like to handle.
Here's a more complete description of what Block Coordinators do.

Here's a form to keep track of your neighbors' contact information.
