Since 1989, Neighborhood House has been providing food and financial aid to local families and individuals around the Farmington and Farmington Hills area. Neighborhood House is an affiliate of the Farmington Area Goodfellows and was developed to step in during the months when the Goodfellows’ warehouse is closed. The nonprofit organization arranges assistance with rent and other utility bills, access to its food pantry, and referrals to other local resources that provide help.
A large portion of the financial support for Neighborhood House comes from its fundraising gala, which also includes the announcement of the Dick Tupper Community Service Award honoree. The last couple of years, the gala has been reimagined with an open house format at the inimitable Longacre House.
Despite the challenges of the pandemic and a dip in financial support, Neighborhood House has continued its work to help our neighbors. The office remains open by appointment only for anyone who is a resident of Farmington or Farmington Hills, or has a child in Farmington Public Schools, and is in need of assistance with rent, utilities, or food.
In years past, Wright Beamer has both sponsored and attended the Neighborhood House’s annual gala, and we are looking forward to being there at next week’s event. More information can be found on the gala’s flyer, and tickets can be purchased at the door.
We encourage anyone who needs assistance to reach out to learn more about the resources available. If you are able, please consider how you can support Neighborhood House as it continues to take care of our community.
