Chocolate for a cause
Know someone who loves chocolate? What could be better than getting them gourmet chocolate that will also support vital services for the region's most vulnerable? Fran's Chocolate, one of the Northwest's premier chocolatiers, donates a percentage of all purchases of Fran's Dark Chocolate Sauce (Item #500200) to benefit Neighborhood House and our mission to help people with limited resources attain self-sufficiency.
We are proud members of and supported by United Way of King County:
Neighborhood House is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (Tax ID #91-0568305), incorporated in 1956 and partners with diverse individuals and families to build community and achieve their goals for health, education and self-sufficiency.
Resourceful immigrant sets sights on home ownership
Xinyu Wang immigrated to the United States from China in 2006. But when he turned 18, his father told him he'd need to move out and support himself.
So, with the help of Seattle Housing Authority and Neighborhood House, Wang was able to move into Yesler Terrace, where the sense of community was strong and helped fuel his desire to give back.
He taught himself English while earning a bachelor's degree at the University of Washington and working two part-time jobs. He's now on a clear trajectory toward home ownership and living the American dream.
