Neighborhood Opportunity Network (NeON)

Launched in 2011 by the New York City Department of Probation, the Neighborhood Opportunity Network (NeON℠) is a network of community-based centers in the seven neighborhoods where large concentrations of people on probation reside. The NeON℠ brings together a network of partners–individuals and organizations, public and private–working together to improve public safety and promote the success of people on probation by working with them in neighborhood settings.

A key to the program’s identity is the design of its facilities, which are conceived as “resource hubs” painted in bold, uplifting colors with durable, but not austere, furniture. Along with myriad other changes, the NeON℠ offices signal an ongoing change in the way clients experience the probation system.

OHNY invites you to learn more about this innovative program with a tour the South Bronx NeON℠ with Catrina Prioleau, Director of the Neighborhood Opportunity Network; Timothy Salyer, Assistant Commissioner, NYC Department of Probation; and James Biber, Biber Architects.


Admission is free for all Spaces of Justice tours, but space is very limited and reservations are required. Reservations for these tours will begin on November 14 at 8am. Click the “Get Tickets” link above to reserve tickets.

Spaces of Justice is a year-long series of tours, panel discussions, and other public programs that allow the public to examine firsthand the spaces with primary responsibility for producing safety and rendering justice in New York City. Major support has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and a grant from the Reba Judith Sandler Foundation.
