NeighborImpact is charged with fighting poverty in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. Our mission: “Supporting people, strengthening communities.” Our purpose: assess local needs and tackle the causes of poverty. To address basic needs, we confront hunger, homelessness, eviction prevention and emergency heating costs. Beyond emergencies, we focus on factors that prevent poverty: childcare and early childhood education services; home weatherization; money management, savings and homeownership; and low interest lending. We confront short- and long-term needs through a suite of programs that move nearly 50,000 households a year toward prosperity. As a non-profit organization, NeighborImpact changes someone’s life for the better every single day. As individuals, we have to look for the right opportunities to make real change in the lives of others. We offer you this chance to do just that: to do good, so that others can do well.
