NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE RECEIVES $20,000 CONSUMERS ENERGY FOUNDATION GRANT
Nonprofit Provides Education, Resources, Hub for Community Events

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
2019

ROCHESTER HILLS, MI – Neighborhood House has received a $20,000 grant from the Consumers Energy Foundation supporting their Neighbors Helping Neighbors capital campaign.

“The Consumers Energy Foundation is committed to helping communities thrive and grow, and we are excited to help Neighborhood House provide vital services for families in Rochester Hills and the surrounding community,” said Carolyn Bloodworth, secretary/treasurer of the Consumers Energy Foundation.

The grant will support the Neighborhood House capital campaign, which goes towards paying off their mortgage. The Neighbor Helping Neighbors campaign supports the new Neighborhood House at 1720 S. Livernois in Rochester Hills, which opened in September 2016. Since the move, Neighborhood House has significantly increased their ability to meet the needs of their neighbors in innovative, proven and personalized ways.

The Neighborhood House building is used for educational initiatives such as computer training, parenting and financial management classes, private counseling, community events, and more. Neighborhood House is the only full-service nonprofit in the area that can help families with wrap-around services to promote self-sustainability.

The success of this campaign will allow Neighborhood House to complete renovations to their new home to most effectively serve those in need in our community and continue to expand their services. Neighborhood House director of Fund Development, Katie Lamb, says, “Because of this grant we are now 90% of the way to our capital campaign goal.”
