Generating Positive Outcomes
For many students, school can be a daily challenge. For low-income or new immigrant students, those challenges often prove daunting; for some, there’s no one at home to help with school work, while for others, there are language and cultural barriers to overcome. Many also deal with personal and family issues that make it difficult to focus on their studies. This leads disadvantaged students to believe that they can’t be successful at school – or life.
Neighborhood House serves as an important force in the lives of Portland-area youth and their families. Our highly regarded school-based programs promote educational success and family involvement for disadvantaged students, providing culturally competent content thanks to our committed and multicultural staff.

Neighborhood House After-School Programs
Neighborhood House runs before- and after-school programs at three North Portland schools, offering children from working families a safe, fun, and nurturing home away from home. Our extended-day activities include:
- Homework help, tutoring, and academic classes.
- Art, sports, and other enrichment.
- Safe, supportive spaces before and after school.
- Summer enrichment programs.
The Connect Program at Stephens Creek Crossing
Our Connect Program serves second through fifth-graders who have been referred by their teachers because they need extra academic and/or social-emotional support.
State-qualified teachers and teacher assistants provide 90 minutes of extra academic support twice weekly through project-based activities focusing on math and literacy. Teaching assistants also provide an additional third day of optional programming, usually in the arts, culture, meditation, life skills and social studies.
The program also offers quarterly field trips, and parents are invited to attend quarterly family nights. These evenings showcase students’ work and provide an opportunity for parents and teachers to socialize in a safe, supportive environment.
Grauer Back to School Project
Neighborhood House partners with St. Luke Lutheran Church and other community members to provide school supplies and clothing to low-income students in the Wilson High School boundaries.
Stephens Creek Crossing Youth Outreach
Neighborhood House manages an early childhood center and, along with Portland Habitat for Humanity, Home Forward, and Hillsdale Community Church, provides early childhood education services at this sustainable apartment community nestled in the Multnomah neighborhood.
