Neighborhood House is one of the most important institutions in the history of St. Paul’s West Side. Neighborhood House has been a welcoming presence for thousands of refugees and immigrants since its founding in 1897 by the women of Mount Zion Temple, who worked to help Eastern European Jewish families settle in the St. Paul area.

For more than a century, Neighborhood House has supported families in times of transition or need from more than 50 cultural and ethnic populations, drawing people from diverse communities in St. Paul and beyond. The demographic makeup of Neighborhood House’s service population has changed with each successive wave of newcomers  — Mexican immigrants after World War II, Hmong refugees in the 1970s and 80s, and Somali and Karen most recently.  What has not changed is our unbending commitment to help families move from “survive” to “thrive.”

Today, Neighborhood House serves more than 15,000 people at our six locations throughout the City of St. Paul.
