Mission statement
Neighborhood House helps diverse communities of people with limited resources attain their goals for self-sufficiency, financial independence and community building.

Organization description
Neighborhood House was formed in 1906 as a Settlement House to provide assistance to Jewish immigrants. The agency was renamed Neighborhood House in 1948, became an independent organization in 1956. We now offer comprehensive services to public housing residents and low-income individuals in cooperation with the Seattle Housing Authority, King County Housing Authority and many other service providers. Our main program areas are family and social services, early childhood education, employment & adult education, youth education, community health and transportation.

The communities we serve
The majority of our families do not speak English as a first language; over 27 different cultural groups and 19 different languages are represented in the communities we serve. Many of our clients are new to the United States and do not speak English at all. Some are economically disadvantaged and many are refugees from war, famine or political oppression. Most struggle with social, cultural, educational, employment and transportation systems that can seem alien and even threatening. The people we serve want very much to become self-sufficient but lack the resources.
