Why this Network?In 2019, we commissioned the Refugee Nonprofit Impact Index which showed that grassroots nonprofits working with refugees and immigrants have a substantial impact both on refugees and volunteers from host communities. Despite their incredible value in communities, half of small organizations fail within the first five years. The Hello Neighbor Network was established in 2019 as a way to help early-stage nonprofits to scale and to connect leaders who are often working in silos.
- Nonprofit leaders apply to our Fellowship Program which provides education on topics essential to early stage nonprofits in this space, including governance, technology, fundraising, partnerships and program evaluation. The Fellowship also includes an online community, peer learning, independent projects, and the opportunity to apply for Resilience Grants.
- In 2022, we launched the Hello Neighbor Network Learning Collaborative through the Mobilizing America for Refugees Fund. This is a year-long program supporting the work of 60 grassroots nonprofits through monthly training sessions from industry experts, sharing of valuable resources, and convening a supportive peer network of grassroots organizations working towards similar goals.
