Since 2017, Hello Neighbor has provided support to over 800 refugees and immigrants from more than 17 countries of origin. It’s programs focus on responding to the needs of our community and connecting refugees and immigrants to the support systems and resources they need to thrive.
Their local Family Services programs provide direct, neighbor-to-neighbor support to refugees and immigrants throughout the Pittsburgh region. These programs include Family Mentorship, connecting local families to their newest neighbors, Study Buddy, offering peer tutoring for refugee and immigrant youth, and Smart Start, providing support to new moms and babies.
They also provide local support through our Direct Services program which supplies refugee and immigrant families in crisis with essential items, support, and direct cash assistance.
It’s newest program, Refugee Resettlement, focuses on supporting new refugee arrivals from the moment they step off the plane through the difficult journey of rebuilding a life – starting with access to safe and furnished housing, employment services, access to basic needs and health services, school enrollment support and so much more.
