NHCO continues to serve people in need. This organization is limited only by the geographical boundaries and by the funding available. They use every possible means to meet the demands of food, shelter, jobs, legal aid, rides, and also school supplies, coats, spring baskets, thanksgiving meals, holiday toys and other gifts,etc. They network with other agencies to increase the scope of aid to those less fortunate.

NHCO helps many individuals and families in a myriad of ways. They strive to aid people from food and job resumes to financial planning and transportation needs, etc. On occasions when they cannot directly fill the need, they refer to other agencies. And they use volunteers in as many roles as possible to keep down the cost of administration and so that more dollars can be used for those in need. It truly is "People Helping People."

I have been a volunteer for many years.

This is absolutely the best nonprofit organization i have ever helped. They know how to use volunteers with a great variety of volunteer opportunities. They accommodate every one with flexible hours and tasks. By using volunteers in many
different ways and not hiring more staff, they are able to make their funds go farther to help those in need.

The Great!

North Hills Community Outreach has been a lifesaver for many in the North Hills of Pittsburgh for decades. They feed and clothe the poor, collect school supplies for students every fall, and provide numerous services for the unemployed, the newly poor, and the disabled. No other non-profit in my area provides the superb services for so many as NHCO.

When I bought a new car two years ago, I gave them my old car. When my cell phones are replaced, they use cell phones for abused women's safety. When they have a food drive, I donate. When they sell citrus each winter to raise money, I purchase it. This organization is surely one of the best in the country.

I would clone some of their volunteers. There are never enough great people to give their time to others--but their volunteers are wonderful.

I have volunteered at North Hills Community Outreach for many years & see all of the good things that are done with food as well as monetary donations. They are truly one of the best "reach out" to the communities non profits that are in the north hills section of Pittsburgh, Pa. Their caring nature of all of the employees as well as the commitment of volunteers is heart warming. I have seen first hand all of the great things that they do when a need is there such as having free bus transportation for those that
can't afford bus fees; their faith in action program that gives rides by volunteers for seniors that need transportation to Drs. offices; having counselors to help men/women to interview well so that they can get a job and be self-sufficient; their Community Auto program that takes vehicles as donations & makes sure that they are ready for the road and if not, have some work done on the vehicle & sell the vehicle for a reasonable price to a person that needs transportation to get to a job or take their child to a doctor appointment and there are other programs too numerous to mention.

I am a volunteer at the Allison Park office for about a year and was amazed at the number of services offered by NHCO. The staff and volunteers I work with are very dedicated and concerned about their clients. I am so happy that I answered the call when volunteers were needed and look forward to the day of the week that I volunteer. Recently I worked the coat shop and it was heartwarming to watch the faces of people coming in for winter clothing and the graciousness of everyone working there helping and assisting the clients. I left feeling happy that I agreed to work at that event.

The Great!

As a volunteer, I see firsthand the dedication and compassion of everyone involved, either staff or the many volunteers. Clients are treated with respect and kindness as they receive help with utilities, housing, employment, food, specialized services to seniors, and assistance with computers, finances and legal issues.

I have followed North Hills Community Outreach's growth since it started. I covered the floods in 1986 for a local newspaper and formation of NHCO in their wake. I was so impressed with its contributions to the community that I became a volunteer after I retired. You couldn't find more dedicated staff members and the many voluneers who carry out the organization's work.

NHCO is an excellent community community partner and well run organization. By relying on donations and volunteers, they are able to achieve great things with donated funds. Their commitment to creating a sustainable garden in order to provide healthy produce for their food pantries is just one fantastic example of the quality organization they are!

They are a great nonprofit and a great resource to those in need in the greater Pittsburgh region. A community garden that supplies fresh produce to their food pantry, community auto program, emergency assistance, ect. We need more nonprofits like North Hills Community Outreach.

What I love about NHCO, among other things, is that it helps people right in our own community who are struggling, often due to things out of their control, such as age or disability, or life interruptions that cause temporary needs (loss of job, accident, etc.). I try to support agencies with global impact but also love that NHCO is helping local folks who have lost their jobs, housing, etc. and need a helping hand. Whether through special projects, like Fall coats or Thanksgiving dinners or school supplies, or ongoing projects like utility assistance and the food pantries and employment resources, they do a fantastic job. I cannot speak more highly of NHCO!!

My sons were looking to get some service hours for a scout merit badge and they contacted NHCO. They went through orientation, which really helped them understand the work that NHCO does. They were most impressed that it was more than a handout and they loved the community garden idea. They both worked at the food bank for those initial service hours, but they also both went on to help more by doing their Eagle Scout projects for them. Everyone they met was so friendly and easy to work with.
