About Neighbor by Neighbor
What we do: Neighbor by Neighbor is a nonprofit 501c3 organization that works to address food insecurities, homelessness, and the dire needs of the vulnerable seniors in our community. We are a resource for our low-income neighbors in SW Berrien County that provides the tools and education for them to progress from dependence to independence.
What this means: For Seniors and the disabled, the goal is to stabilize them, and ensure they are safe and secure, so they can live as valued members of our community. For the broader population, the immediate objective is to ensure they are safe, have food on the table, and a roof over their head. Once that is accomplished, we assess their current situation, and partner with them to create a plan leading to employment opportunities and financial independence.
We do this by: Ensuring they are stably housed, and able to pay for their basic necessities while providing access to a range of resources that address increases in skills, knowledge, and education allowing them to achieve independence.
