Support Our Work

Get involved!

Here are some ways you can support Neighborhood House’s work in the community.  Please note that while the majority of our funding comes from government contracts, Neighborhood House must still raise approximately $1 million this year through fundraising and other means to cover the agency's costs.  

Our Emergency Food Box Program, Chase House (housing for young homeless mothers and their children), our Adult ESL Classes and our Family Support Services at Stephens Creek Crossing receive no government funding, and rely entirely on community support.  Your donation will support one of those programs, or one of these others that need fundraised support to supplement the partial public funding they receive:

  • Aging Services for general operations of the Senior Center and senior food pantry
  • Senior Transportation
  • SSSES, counseling for high-school students at-risk of dropping out
  • Ninth Grade Counts Wilson Summer Academy
  • SUN Schools, transportation for taking students home at the end of the day, among others.

Neighborhood House is a responsible steward of your contributions. We have a long history of sound management and are committed to providing high-quality programs that effectively strengthen the lives of low-income children, families and seniors. Of every dollar contributed, 84 cents go directly to support our programs.
