Neighborhood House’s mission is to bring neighbors together to prevent hunger and homelessness and educate community members of all ages. We strengthen community by providing resources to support self-reliance, economic independence, and dignity for people of all backgrounds.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, we served more than 8,000 low-income Portlanders, including 800 young children in three early childhood education programs. Our Child Care Improvement Project helped 80 immigrant women entrepreneurs strengthen their businesses and increase the early learning focus of their care. One hundred percent met the goal of attaining state licensure within 12 months.
“Because of the help I’ve received from Neighborhood House, I’ve not only been able to find permanent housing for my family, I have also healed some of my trauma and overcome a lot of fear. My children and I have a bright future. We are filled with hope and joy in large part because of help we received from Neighborhood House.” —Former resident of Neighborhood House
