Neighborhood House builds community and increases access to housing, health, education, and economic opportunity.
A healthy, diverse, and welcoming community, free of poverty and racism, where all people thrive.
Community. We welcome all, embrace diversity, and foster belonging. We are embedded in community. We partner with individuals, families, schools, housing authorities, health care providers, and communities to fulfill our mission.
Equity. We believe equity is determined by the community and those that live in it. We share power, work to repair past inequity, and listen and learn from each other and our communities. We work together, with humility and courage, to disrupt poverty, racism, and injustice.
Integrity. We are ethical, honest, and transparent; we build trust by holding ourselves accountable to each other, the people we serve, and community partners.
Relationships. We put relationships first. We respect and care about the people we serve, the people we work with, and everyone who makes our work possible.
Sustainability. We believe a vibrant community where all people thrive requires environmental stewardship and investment ...in future generations. We are committed to delivering sustainable programs, building organizational capacity, and valuing staff.
Founded in 1906, Neighborhood House is one of the oldest social service agencies in the Puget Sound region. Today, we continue to provide services to address the needs of entire families, with a focus on low-income community members, public housing residents, immigrants, and refugees. We serve over 15,000 people annually through our major program areas of early childhood education, youth development, employment and adult education, housing stability, aging and disability services, and community health.
