Volunteers are critical to fulfilling the Neighborhood House mission. Many volunteers provide specialized skills vital to delivering services that the Center could not otherwise offer.
We are fortunate to have strong partners that share our mission in service. Some of these partnering organizations and corporations are St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, the Cincinnati Reds, P&G, the YMCA, St. Vincent DePaul, HGC, the Cincinnati Zoo, Kroger Co., Freestore Foodbank, Delivering Good, Christ Emanuel Christian Fellowship
The Neighborhood House also leverages student volunteers to increase programming, administrative, and technology support. These include paid student co-ops, work-study, and unpaid interns fulfilling University of Cincinnati (UC) degree requirements supplement the work of volunteers and staff. In the past, these students have worked directly with the Sports and Beyond, After School, Summer Day Camp, and Victims of Crime Outreach Programs as well as assisted with improving social media presence, special events, and clerical work. Most students have been from UC, but the Center has also received volunteers from Mount Saint Joseph University, Brown Mackie College and Northern Kentucky University.
Volunteer Needs We increasingly have students and residents wanting to offer their support for our organization. To help us best leverage these valuable resources, we need a Volunteer Coordinator to develop a Volunteer Training Program and schedule volunteer opportunities. Our current staff currently works very hard to meet the need but could expand and tailor offerings if a coordinator were present to support them.
