San Diego Based Organization Providing Jobs and Assistance to Local Families

The Neighborhood House Association is a non-profit located here in the 4th district. Its mission is to brighten the futures of San Diego youth and families. Just recently, 14 members from the Congressional Black Caucus visited the Neighborhood House Association in hopes of proclaiming it a national non-profit leader.

In 1914, Neighborhood House began as a settlement house, dedicated to helping immigrants adapt to life in San Diego. Today, they offer numerous education, empowerment, and wellness programs to more than 24,000 individuals and families throughout the nation. Their programs include Head Start, Homework Center, Friendship Clubhouse, and many more.
