About the Organization:
Since 1982 Neighbors Together has been fighting hunger and poverty with three integrated programs: Community Café, Empowerment Program, Community Action Program. Our three programs are designed to meet immediate and basic needs while creating pathways for our members to actively challenge the underlying conditions that perpetuate poverty. All of our activities are grounded in the needs and hopes of our neighbors, honoring the dignity of each individual and striving for the overall empowerment of our community.
