Careers


Jen and Students

Neighborhood House is always looking for qualified, caring and committed people to join our staff. Our team members enjoy a major benefit--knowing their work changes lives and makes our community stronger. Neighborhood House is an equal opportunity employer. We deeply value and encourage cultural diversity in all our programs.

Equal Opportunity Employer/ Americans with Disabilities Act

It is the policy of Neighborhood House that we acknowledge the richness of commonalities and differences we share as a college community. We aspire to create respect for and appreciation of all persons that are a part of our community and further strive to achieve an environment that welcomes and supports diversity.

Equal Opportunity Employer Statement

Neighborhood House does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, creed, color, national origin, religion, age, disability, marital or familial status, sexual orientation, genetics, or veteran status, gender identity, or any other basis prohibited by local, state or federal law. This policy complies with letter of applicable federal and local laws, including Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Commitment to Equity

Neighborhood House's program participants represent a remarkably diverse mix of ethnicities and cultures. To meet the needs of these diverse communities, Neighborhood House offers culturally-specific services for African, Latino, Middle Eastern and Russian immigrants in various programs. We have many bilingual staff who speak Spanish, Russian and Somali and other African languages to effectively reach out to non-English speakers and to insure they feel welcome and are getting the help they need. We believe an equitable workforce will strengthen and enrich our organization and strongly encourage all qualified persons to apply regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or otherwise.
