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 or to help them learn about American culture including language, navigating a new city, and how to understand life’s challenges.

Here's how you can get involved.

We’re excited to hear from you! If you’re interested in volunteering, making a donation or bringing Hello Neighbor to your city, see below. For all other inquiries, please visit our contact page.
