ONE FAMILY’S STORY
OLIVIA’S SUCCESS STORY
Olivia’s family received assistance from Neighborhood House 20 years ago, when she was a single mother. Her two daughters participated in Head Start, they used the Food Pantry, and once, they received help with housing when Olivia couldn’t work. Today, Olivia owns her own business employing 33 other women!
Last April, she did us the honor of donating $1,500 to repay the assistance she received and to ensure that it was there for other families needing help.
Languages our Parenting Program staff collectively speak, including Spanish, Arabic, Hindi and Somali

2020 SW HOPE COMMUNITY FOOD DRIVE
Since 2007, Neighborhood House has held the SW HOPE community food drive to combat the sharp decline in food donations that occurs after the new year begins. We partner with more than 40 local faith communities, businesses, and schools to keep the spirit of generosity flowing in order to fully stock the shelves of the Neighborhood House Food Pantry.
