Who we are

Mission Statement

"We represent the interests and aspirations of those who live in this area to preserve and enhance a safe and appealing neighborhood for all."



The Southeast Organized Area Residents was Founded May 31st, 2015. Southeast Organized Area Residents (SOAR Inc.) is the neighborhood association of the Southeast Neighborhood in South Bend. Our neighborhood organization was started by residents to benefit not only their own area but the city as a whole. Individuals are encouraged to attend meetings and support their work on your behalf. Working together as neighbors is one way we strengthen our city. SOAR Inc. is designed to give residents a greater voice in the city's government.

The Southeast Organized Area Residents neighborhood association represents the interests of local residents who reside in the area bordered by Sample St., Miami St., Ewing Ave., and Michigan St.
