NHCO excels in providing resources and support for those in need within the local community with a very low expense ratio. The management, staff and board members are the most dedicated, hard working and compassionate people I have ever had the privilege to work alongside. The organization has grown dramatically over the last three years and continues to expand it's services and resources.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the local communities it serves. NHCO has been and continues to be instrumental in providing support for victims of the floods, feeding people who are hungry, providing utility expense relief, and making resources available for people to get jobs, increase their education, or become more self sufficient.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

focus on raising funds for a large endowment as a long term goal, so the organization can continue to serve the underpriveleged for generations to come.

the involvement I have had with the amazing employees, board members and volunteers who make NHCO the superior non-profit that it is.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

To continue to find new sources of funding.

North Hills Community Outreach (NHCO) is a model non-profit in Allegheny County. As a former congressional staffer specializing in economic development and specifically working with Pittsburgh's non-profit community I witnessed NHCO's operating efficiencies and their sound business model. NHCO has worked with non-profits throughout the region as a mentor with great success through a federal program called Compassion Capital. Through there work, they have gained great respect from the local, state and federal governments.

The volunteers and employees at the Millvale satellite of the North Hills Community Outreach excel in helping people to keep their utilities on, to providing food, and referring clients to agencies who can help them. Each client is treated with respect and their needs are of the utmost importance to the staff serving them. Working as a receptionist and at various odd jobs gives me a first hand look at the needs of the clients that contact the office. NHCO does an excellent job with every client that it serves.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

families and people that were served.

This organization is great when it comes to helping people meet the basic needs of life. Staff and volunteers also strive to help people reach self-sufficiency beyond basic human needs. For example, people are able to acquire jobs, purchase cars, and gain an education with the help of the organization. The organization also works to help other non-profits become successful.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the appreciation of clients who are given food so that they will not be hungry, utility assistance so that their electric will not be terminated, and money for rent so that they have a place to live.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all very warm and giving.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

No bells, no whistles, no huge salaries or administrative expenses; NHCO defines “full-service” and embellishes it with efficiency and seven pounds of caring. Over 6300 services were delivered last year. But that doesn’t really reflect the truth. NHCO’s motto of “People Helping People” defines what really happens through services. Individuals receive not only assistance for their immediate situation but often learn to better themselves and their lives for the future. That, to quote my teenagers, “Is WAY COOL.”

The Great!

expand current services and expand its service area
