You can impact our work here in Pittsburgh in enormous ways. Hello Neighbor is always looking for volunteers to help us address the needs of our refugee and immigrant neighbors. We are looking for people who are excited to contribute to our amazing community and grow our Hello Neighbor family!

Remember you can also apply to be a mentor or nominate a mentee!


Hello Neighbor is always looking for volunteers to help us with a number of tasks including:

  • Event Support - Volunteer at any of our events. We always need help with set-up, clean-up, and other tasks. Take a look at our events page to see what is coming up.
  • Driving - Help take refugee families to our events, new moms to their doctor’s appointments, and other needs as they arise.
  • Special Talents - Are you a notary? Can you help mentee families understand legal documents? Are you a graphic designer? A photographer? Let us know!
  • New Mom Support - We have a number of new moms in our program, and this is their first baby born in America! Can you support by providing a meal? Answering questions? Sitting with them once a week for the first month?
