Neighborhood House News




We are delighted to present our 2012 Annual Report that highlights our success for the year and reflects the foundation of quality upon which Neighborhood House was built 119 years ago. As one of Utah's oldest organized service providers, Neighborhood House possesses a rich history of providing quality and compassionate care to children and adults.  We remain committed to honoring this powerful legacy by aspiring to always improve our programs, raise our standards and expand our influence.   As you read through this Annual Report, please consider joining in our effort to "Aspire Higher," as we continue to provide our vital services. We could not accomplish what we do without the generous support of our many friends, donors, volunteers and partners.  At Neighborhood House, however, we like to think that we give back as much as we receive. We hope you agree. Visit our website to donate!



Neighborhood House has a new Girl Scout Troop!

Thanks to a special outreach project by the GSUSA, Troop 1121 can exist with financial assistance for families requiring it.

With over twenty girls aged 5-12, the troop has already been hard at work, learning the Girl Scout Pledge, the Girl Scout Promise, and even writing their own Troop Pledge. Cookie season is right around the corner, and we are always looking for volunteers. See our blog for more information on how you can help.



The Cottonwood Adult Day Center in Murray had a great fall season, and has even more fun planned for the winter! There will be an open house on Dec. 12th featuring a wellness clinic by the Caregiver Support Network. Cottonwood clients will also be attending the Festival of Trees and several music programs.


The Holiday Season is only beginning, and
Neighborhood House has already had a ton of fun. Four visits from Santa, new presents, toys, shoes, and clothes, donated Thanksgiving dinners, and more! Our generous sponsors have made this holiday season a blast, and we are so grateful for everything they've offered! Check out our blog to see a full list of holiday sponsors -- and thank you all again for your help!
