Meet the Team

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