Uniting neighbors to strengthen our community

Founded in 1975, Corcoran Neighborhood Organization unites neighbors to strengthen our community. We envision Corcoran as a place that fosters leadership, engagement, and a sense of belonging. Corcoran Neighborhood Organization serves the area of south Minneapolis bounded by East Lake Street to the north, East 36th Street to the south, Hiawatha Avenue to the east, and Cedar Avenue to the west.
