Who We Are
House of Neighborly Service
Provides life-sustaining services to the most vulnerable populations:
- working families who are not making ends meet
- single parents and grand families (grandparents raising grandchildren)
- people experiencing a situational crisis.
HNS believes in the hand-up approach and encourages action steps beyond just meeting the immediate need by supporting, strengthening, and connecting families to vital resources. We help them return to a path of self-reliance.
Many of the service and resource providers that we make referrals to every day are located right here in our new facility – Life Center. As a shared space for non-profits, partners make services more accessible and have greater impact. Life Center partners provide tools that bring lasting change, which positively impacts the client and our community.
Breaking the cycle of poverty…together!.
History and Founders-HAPPY 55th ANNIVERSARY!
House of Neighborly Service (HNS) was founded in 1961 when multiple churches came together, with the united vision of creating a central location to meet the emergency needs of families and individuals facing crises. By pooling their resources, they created House of Neighborly Service-a place where people seeking assistance could be referred to a compassionate, trained, and skilled staff and there would be a system of tracking services being provided. Today, HNS is a hub of many services, creating greater impact and accountability to those being served and a place where the entire community can get involved through contributions and volunteerism.
