At Neighborhood House, volunteers are essential to achieving our mission. Volunteers bring enthusiasm, expertise, and share diverse perspectives that foster a community of mutual enrichment. This past year alone, volunteers provided invaluable service by helping us to feed hungry families, educate new immigrants and refugees, create safe spaces for youth, and move families from survive to thrive!

Here at Neighborhood House we have one-time and on-going volunteers.  We have opportunities for individuals and groups as well as Service Learning/Internship opportunities.
