Since 2003, NeighborLink has existed to provide practical, neighbor-to-neighbor expressions of God???s love. But what exactly does that look like? Sometimes it Is a family painting fire hydrants or a college student helping on a leaf-raking project. Other times it Is a small group mowing lawns together or a retired businessperson helping on a ramp project for the very first time.
Each year we receive more than 3,000 home-related requests from neighbors facing a myriad of complex needs. Many times the requests come as a desperate last resort when every other option has tragically fallen short. This is a complicated place for any person to find themselves in when winter is approaching and the furnace fails to work, or when the hospital is ready to discharge a patient who has no means of easily accessing their house.
After 17 years of linking neighbors in need with the volunteers who can serve them best, the needs we see within our community have only become more complex. However, we are as excited and committed as ever to be the trusted source for homeowners in need of help when all other options have failed.
Without the partnership of donors just like you, our capacity to serve and love our neighbors will always come up short. And while each year brings more unique and unseen complexities to our doorstep, each complexity provides another opportunity to provide practical, neighbor-to-neighbor expressions of God???s love to those who need it most.
