We love our neighbors and we know you do too.
That's why Neighbor to Neighbor was launched in 2009 as a community effort to meet the increased need in Greater New Haven as a result of the economic downturn. It was envisioned as a tangible, doable way neighbors could help their neighbors who were struggling to provide the basics for their families.
Over the past eight years, Neighbor to Neighbor has invested $3.5 million in our region to help address hunger and homelessness. These dollars have resulted in:
1,367,212 million additional meals served to children and adults
5,284 individuals receiving emergency shelter or housing services to prevent homelessness
992 individuals receiving emergency heating, medical, and other assistance
A total of over 20,000 people received services to help them avert or pull-out of a crisis.
