We’re A Service Enterprise!

Service Enterprise Volunteers

As a Service Enterprise, Neighborhood House is a leader in helping volunteers maximize their impact!

Neighborhood House is excited to announce that we have been certified by Points of Light as a Service Enterprise! A Service Enterprise is an organization that effectively leverages volunteers and their skills throughout their organization to successfully deliver on its social mission.

Research conducted by the TCC Group, a national program and evaluation firm, found that organizations operating as Service Enterprises outperform peer organizations on all aspects of organizational effectiveness, and are much more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their work.

Over the past year, Neighborhood House completed an extensive assessment and over 20 hours of training and consulting. The result? An extensive internal plan to improve the way we integrate volunteers in our day to day operations. By achieving this level of excellence and certification, we are now better equipped than ever to leverage the time and talents of volunteers to better serve our community.
