Our response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

A note from Neighborhood House

Re: Our response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

While coronavirus is changing so much about the way we are living our lives, it isn’t changing one thing: our deep commitment to families in our community who look to Neighborhood House for help during difficult times.

We know that hard-working families who are living in poverty, including seniors and children, will be hit hardest during this time of economic downturn, reduced or eliminated work, and school cancellation caused by COVID-19. At the same time, we feel that Neighborhood House must be part of the global effort to create greater social distance and slow the spread of coronavirus. Therefore, beginning Monday, March 16, Neighborhood House will suspend non-essential programming. Food support and crisis housing support will remain available to our participants with the greatest need.

What does this mean?

There is so much we don’t know yet with the short-term and long-term impact of the spread of coronavirus and we want to assure you that the leadership team and I are in constant communication to make decisions as needed. We know that we are not alone and that our efforts, when combined with others, will make a difference for everyone in our state.

All of us at Neighborhood House are so very grateful for each of you. Your participation in our programs, your contributions, and your collaboration make life just a bit brighter for others. We do not take that for granted and hope that in the very near future, we will be able to see this as another time that we worked together to make lives better.

I wish all of you and your families the best during this difficult time.
