Meet the Team

Hello Neighbor is a collective and community effort. We are a small but mighty team! In addition to our staff, we have a committed group of interpreters, contractors, photographers, friends, fellows, interns and more that help us do what we do. We couldn’t do this work without everyone’s collaborative effort, including the dedicated mentors, mentees, and volunteers in our programs.

Sloane Davidson

Founder and CEO

Prior to starting Hello Neighbor, Sloane worked for 15 years across the intersection of philanthropy and digital marketing. For 8 years, she created and led one of the leading cause blogs on the Internet called The Causemopolitan. She currently sits on the Board of Resolve Network, an NGO based in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, that focuses on jobs for women in post-conflict countries through microfinance, and the prestigious Indiana University’s Lilly School of Philanthropy Women’s Philanthropy Institute. She was a 2009 Kiva Fellow in the Philippines and has been invited to speak on her activism at The Clinton Global Initiative and The World Economic Forum. Sloane has a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Economics from the University of Vermont and a Master of Public Policy & Management from the University of Pittsburgh. A proud Pittsburgh native, Sloane returned to her hometown in 2015 and currently lives in Highland Park with her husband and two sons.
