mission is to offer help and assistance to community members in need.
Our commitment is to provide aid when other support systems have
faltered or are unavailable.
In 1991, Joanne Hansen, a secretary
at Sol Feinstone Elementary, was eagerly awaiting the birth of her
child. However, in her ninth month of pregnancy, she suffered a massive
stroke which left her a quadriplegic. Through community efforts, a
group was formed to help Joanne and her family during this time of
crisis. During this time, the group became aware of other members in
the community facing similar needs. It was then that the Neighborhood
Outreach Foundation was formed, to provide aid to others in need. We
continue to support Joanne’s rehabilitation.
In addition to helping Joanne, the
Neighborhood Outreach Foundation has made a commitment to help people
in need, through confidential grants, within the Council Rock School
District community. Neighborhood Outreach Foundation has provided many
forms of assistance, such as medical expenses, utilities, insurance and
rent payments. These referrals are mostly through Council Rock School
District’s nurses and social workers, however all residents with or
without school-aged children (including senior citizens), may request
financial aid through the Neighborhood Outreach Foundation.
Your support is greatly appreciated and is making a difference within our community.
