Neighbors Helping Neighbors provides partnering agencies, advocates, and volunteers a central facility and assists with collaborative programming which is needed to serve the community’s at risk, in need, and displaced citizens.
With multiple nonprofits located together in a common location, The Neighborhood can facilitate access to services and help meet the needs of families served. The Neighborhood routinely serves hundreds of people daily.
The Neighborhood was formed in 2002 to ultimately provide a centralized facility where nonprofit agencies could serve the needs of low income individuals with basic assistance. In 2004, land and a building was purchased on Central Avenue in Ashland, KY and work began to determine how it could be refurbished to best serve the mission’s objectives. By 2007, structural repairs and improvements were completed and the interior spaces for CAReS and River Cities Harvest were operational. In 2011, The Dressing Room’s new space was completed. In early 2012, Ashland Community Kitchen joined; and in 2013, Clean Start was opened for showers, general mail, and hygiene supplies.
