Neighborhood House Portland , OR 97201

Posted 3 months ago

Who we are:

Neighborhood House is here for families facing hunger and homelessness, vulnerable seniors and children who need help in school. Founded in 1905 by the Portland Section of the National Council of Jewish Women, Neighborhood House was the citys first organization committed to helping the many immigrants who were arriving at that time, and living primarily in South Portland.

What we do:

Neighborhood House assists low-income, recent immigrant and other vulnerable people living in the greater Portland area. Our programs serve disadvantaged children needing help to be successful in school, families facing hunger and homelessness, and seniors needing support so they can remain living active and independent lives.

Neighborhood House's program participants represent a remarkably diverse mix of ethnicities and cultures. To meet the needs of these diverse communities, Neighborhood House offers culturally-specific services for African, Latino, Middle Eastern and Russian immigrants in various programs.

We have many bilingual staff who speak Spanish, Russian and Somali and other African languages to effectively reach out to non-English speakers and to insure they feel welcome and are getting the help they need. We believe an equitable workforce will strengthen and enrich our organization and strongly encourage all qualified persons to apply regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or otherwise.

What we offer our employees:

Neighborhood House believes our employees are our best investment. Because of this, we provide an excellent full-time (30 hours and above) benefits package including low-cost medical insurance, low-cost dental insurance, paid life insurance, paid long term disability insurance, 403B, FSA, and more.

We also offer generous paid time off policy, 11 paid holidays a year, and a flexible working schedule for most positions. Finally, Neighborhood House eligible for credit in the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.
