MISSION STATEMENT

House of Neighborly Service assists and advocates for people challenged by the effects of poverty or situational crisis.

Many of our clients are young families who are working but not making ends meet, single mothers and fathers who are doing everything they can to keep their families* safe and provide for basic needs.  Other clients are seniors, veterans, and disabled who live on fixed incomes, and individuals who experience job loss due to illness or layoff.
*Approximately half of our clients are school-aged children in the families.

VISION STATEMENT

House of Neighborly Service (HNS) is a local, faith-based, grass roots, and non-profit organization.  Established under the Loveland Council of Churches and community members in 1961, HNS is celebrating over 57 years of service.

The HNS vision is to stabilize and empower at-risk families, children, youth, seniors and disabled who are experiencing situational crises or the effects of poverty.  The HNS programs encourage self-sufficiency and self-reliance by helping to access and maximize the economic, physical, social, emotional and spiritual resources available in our community.  By providing a multitude of basic services, including educational and employment services under one roof, there is greater opportunity to access valuable resources.  These partnerships also create a greater degree of accountability from those receiving assistance and to our faithful donors.  (Adopted by HNS Board of Directors 2/24/2011)

HOPE FOR TOMORROW
We help people plan for the future by providing individualized support to all of our families through case management, financial education, and helping them find the resources they need to thrive.
