Neighborhood House is a multi-service agency, providing wrap-around services for people when they need it most. Founded in 1897 by the women of Mount Zion Temple, Neighborhood House has supported families from over 50 cultural and ethnic populations in times of transition or need. With each successive wave of newcomers, the demographic makeup of our service population has changed. What has not changed is our commitment to helping families move from “survive” to “thrive.” Today, Neighborhood House helps immigrants, refugees and others find pathways out of poverty through programming in Basic Needs (six Family Centers, two food markets, and Community Health) and Lifelong Learning (Parent and Early Childhood Education, Youth Leadership, and Adult Education). All our programs and services are offered free of charge to our participants.
