Through our four distinct program areas we continue to build bridges for our newest neighbors.
Hello Neighbor started with the simple mission to improve the lives of recently resettled refugees and immigrants in Pittsburgh by matching them with dedicated neighbors to guide and support them in their new lives. But since our start in 2017, we have grown in ways we could never have imagined.
We are now a Resettlement Agency, which allows us to welcome our newest neighbors starting on Day 0, by offering a warm welcome at the airport, providing a safe place to stay, and basic necessities like hot meals and access to transportation, health care, and education.
Reception and Placement
Providing our refugee and immigrant neighbors with a warm welcome and network of support from day one.
In addition to resettlement, our Family Services programs are in place for wrap-around support in the post 90-day period. These programs include:
Our cornerstone program that strategically matches local Pittsburghers with our newest neighbors to form a relationship of friendship and welcoming.
Born out of the Covid-19 pandemic, this program provides free virtual, one-on-one tutoring for refugee and immigrant students in 6-12 grades in Allegheny county.
A culturally-tailored perinatal support program for refugees and immigrants in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Along with our Resettlement and Family Services programs, we launched The Hello Neighbor Network in October 2019.

The Network is a coalition of grassroots organizations working with refugees and immigrants in the U.S. that come together to grow and inspire change.

Reception and Placement (known as R&P - which is the government program that facilitates refugee resettlement in the U.S.) only provides support for individuals and families for the first 90 days they are in the U.S. Organizations like Hello Neighbor around the country fill the crucial gap post-resettlement to provide ongoing support for our newest neighbors.
