Hello Neighbor

Our mission to support recently resettled refugees is more critical than ever in the time of COVID-19. Help support your newest neighbors through our Refugee Assistance Fund.

Who We Are

We are a nonprofit organization based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania committed to supporting our newest neighbors, recently resettled refugee families. The families we support all have kids under 18 in the home while our mentors range from young professionals to families and seniors. We proudly engage entire families to make Hello Neighbor a family-focused volunteer opportunity.

What We Do

At the core of Hello Neighbor is our mentorship program matching refugee families with caring neighbors. Mentors serve as welcome wagons and support the refugee families to help them feel more comfortable and confident in their new lives.

Why We Do It

Many new arrivals face extreme isolation and lack a support system to help them as they learn about American culture and how to navigate a new city, overcome language barriers, and tackle everyday life challenges.
