I have been involved in NHCO as a volunteer since 2003. I have served as a Board Member, and worked on Board committees. This organization has helped so many individuals and families in need in the northern Allegheny County area. I am so proud to be a part of this organization. I work with the staff and other volunteers. I have seen first hand how this organization works and how our clients are taken care of in a compassionate way. I have Co-chaired a fundraiser for the last five years and was able to raise funds that were directed to help with rental and utility assistance, caregiving for seniors and adults with physical disabilities, employment, food panty and more. Because we have strong Board members, a dynamic Exercutive Director and dedicated staff, NHCO is an organization that promotes a lot of good will in the community.

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

As a volunteer I've received , "The Compassion in Action Award", The Jefferson Award for Public Service, and the $Energy Award. I have worked with homeless people and immigrants and helped them move their families into affordable housing. I have personally helped individuals and families with housing, utilities, clothing and food. Families have come back to the organization to say "thank you" for all the help.

I would work harder to get the word out about the good work NHCO has done and where we want to go in the future.

Thanks to North Hills Community Outereach, our student volunteers have an opportunity to learn and experience what giving back to a community really means. Our college club student members have been able to participate in the United Way's Day of Caring at the Outreach and also share in various volunteer opportunities throughout the year. So many of our students have been personally touched by your agency whether in terms of assistance with their basic needs of life, food shelter and clothing, to financial assistance for educational purposes, or to set up a household, or to purchase their first home or car. THANK YOU for helping over 700 families in the North Hills area.

I am proud to be a volunteer at NHCO and Community Auto. It's a joy to find a compassionate, commited staff with one goal of providing assistance to those living in the North Hills. I personally know two families who could not have made it through some dark financial times without the help of NHCO. They're the best!

I have been present when someone comes in to discuss available services with the case manager. I have seen the look of relief on their faces when they learn that there is a group of people working together to help them live safely in their neighborhood. I have also seen those who come in to pick up their car from Community Auto. This car is a way for them to get a job, go to school and care for the need of their families. What's better than that!

The only thing that this organizsation lacks is consistant funding. It can't be easy when you rely on grants and contributions to fund your programs in this economy. Other than funding they have all the skills necessary to do a great job.

My son and I volunteered at the Food Bank over the summer. What a wonderful team you have and no one was turned away because the food ran out. There was plenty of food and everyone was patient and kind to each other.

The NHCO is a wonderful organization, helping our community is so very many ways. I am a volunteer on the Free Rides for Seniors bus. This service has become integral to the lives of so many residents in our community, allowing them to lead more independent lives than would otherwise be possible.
Kerry Mulhern manages, among many other things, this corp of volunteers. She puts heart and soul into her job and we feel very lucky to have her.

The North Hills Community Outreach is a wonderful organization and I am honored to be a volunteer. This organization helps so many people in so many ways. They have an excellent food pantry, they provide folks with rides to doctors appointments and food shopping, as well as deliver food and gifts to folks in need.

This quote tells it all, "You're one of God's angels he put on earth."
