Welcome to Neighborhood House
Regardless of where a participant is in their life’s journey, Neighborhood House provides the tools needed to move from “survive to thrive,” working to help break the cycle of poverty through four main programs: basic needs, youth leadership, adult and family education, and community building.
Program services include two of the most multicultural food shelves in the area, distributing over 2,500 pounds of food daily to nearly 12,000 families each year. The food shelves are closely connected to the Family Centers, which provide housing support and other basic needs to help families find stability. Additionally, we offer programs in youth, adult, and family education and leadership that provide the skills needed to pursue higher education goals, gain employment, and become self-sufficient, thriving members of our community.
Our participants are immigrants, refugees and long-term residents facing challenging situations. Of the approximately 15,000 people we serve each year, more than 90% live at or below the poverty level, over 90% are minority, and roughly 75% speak a native language other than English at home.
Many participants return to the organization as volunteers, donors or staff, paying the mission forward.
You can work toward breaking the cycle of poverty as a participant, volunteer or donor. When you partner with Neighborhood House, you make a valuable difference in our community. We invite you to become part of our neighborhood tradition and local history.
