The Process...

Each person or family who requests help from MY NEIGHBOR  starts with an INITIAL PRE-ASSESSMENT to determine the most efficient and effective way to help you in your crisis.This process typically STARTS over the phone or thru other communication sources if a phone is not available.

 

If it is determined that the My Neighbor program is a able to financially assist, the Requester goes through an IN-PERSON in-depth assessment process to determine a plan of action with LONG-TERM SOLUTIONS.

 

My Neighbor will help to solve the immediate need or crisis by offering Information and Referral Resources with possible Financial support, when NO other service or solution exist, and when we have funds available.

 

Our Missions is to help  our commuity members who are hard working and other wise self sufficient, but are in crisis and budget difficulty when their paycheck is not enough.
