Since 1989, Neighborhood House has been providing food and financial aid to local families and individuals around the Farmington and Farmington Hills area. An affiliate of the Farmington Area Goodfellows, Neighborhood House 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. Typically, the event is held each year in April, but has unfortunately been postponed this year. And even though Neighborhood House has had to put off its annual fundraising gala, the work continues. 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 need of help with rent, utilities or food.
In years past, Wright Beamer has both sponsored and attended the Neighborhood House’s annual gala. 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 help our community.
