Most of the organizations and institutions do not have specific program in unusual neighborhoods, including the case, and those who implemented, or have implemented some programs or are going to implement, the activities are just from the specific angle of their own organizational profits, and cannot make any difference in these neighborhoods. These programs cannot make considerable changes in the mentioned neighborhoods, and on the other hand, empowerment staff has facilitator and guide role in the empowerment of the target neighborhoods and in addition to intelligent use all capacity of the organizations and different governmental and public institutions, it is necessary to use all capacities and capabilities of the residents of these areas.
