SW HOPE is happening now!
Are you ready to fight hunger in the community? For 15 years, Neighborhood House has partnered with local faith, business, and other communities to raise food and funds for the SW HOPE Community Food Drive. Every dollar and pound of food raised benefits the Neighborhood House Food Pantry. Support the campaign by attending a COVID-safe event, giving online, or telling a friend!

ONE FAMILY’S STORY
SALMA’S SUCCESS STORY
When Kenyan journalist Salma arrived in the U.S. in early 2019, she was faced with the challenges of being a single mother in a place she had never been and where she knew no one. Salma came to Neighborhood House’s 19th Avenue Apartments just a few months after arriving in Portland with her young son. Thanks to her bravery and commitment to making a life for herself and her family, Salma has found housing, stability, and hope. Watch her story below:
