Neighbors, Inc.

Mission Statement

Providing opportunities for our neighbors to thrive by connecting volunteers to people in need.

Impact and Programs

Accomplishments In the last year, Neighbors saw a dramatic increase in demand for our food, clothing, and basic-needs programs. As inflation made life difficult, we stepped up to make sure everyone had food to eat, clothing to wear, and access to essential household items. Also in the last year, Neighbors opened our Financial Empowerment Center and grew our Financial Empowerment Program. The financial counseling, education, and other services this program provides are designed to make a deep impact in our clients’ finances, both now and in the future. Identifying and working towards financial goals helps our clients improve their financial well-being, build assets, and become more financially resilient. Neighbors has been working hard to meet urgent basic needs, as well as help people move out of poverty in the future.
Current Goals The main goal for Neighbors' Hunger Program is to "get the most food, to the most people, experiencing the most need." We commit to offering a quality assortment of foods to choose from in our food shelf. We are also working to establish similarly strong and sustainable standards for our Neighbors Express food distributions (off-site distributions in locations with particularly severe need). We expect that the need for food will continue to grow this year, and our goal is to meet that need with a high quality of service. We also have a goal of increasing the number of participants in our new Financial Empowerment Program, and to spread awareness about our financial education services in new and creative ways.
