Who we are:

Neighborhood House is here for families facing hunger and homelessness, vulnerable seniors and children who need help in school.

What we do:

 

Neighborhood House assists low-income, recent immigrant and other vulnerable people living in the greater Portland area. Our programs serve disadvantaged children needing help to be successful in school, families facing hunger and homelessness, and seniors needing support so they can remain living active and independent lives.
