HI, im homeless, i have been for almost 2 years now. me and my husband and my best friend. you would think with the three of us we would be able to get a place to live, but after one year, we were able to get a car. a good car. its cold out again. witch sucks.... Back to the tent boys summer is over.... one day when i grow up, im going to be just happy with what I have. almost 2 years of homelessness, still not holding up signs... still working still homeless. If I thought any one really cared, I guess I would of left my name. but it takes alot more then just a volunteer to get the heck out of the cold into a home... of what your ideal of a home is any way. Im just glad Im in america, people wast a lot of good stuff...
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.
NHCO has met the needs of the families, individuals and seniors it serves in Northern Allegheny County beyond words. The impact of their caring and generousity is seen and felt on a daily basis.
As a resident of the North Hills community, I've know about NHCO for many years and have regularly donated groceries, clothing, coats and money to this very worthwhile organization. Last year, after retiring, I began to volunteer there for a variety of special projects. My eyes were opened even further when I saw first hand the wonderful services these dedicated people perform. For example, giving emergency counseling and help to desperate people; providing back-to-school supplies to hundreds of needy area children, and warm winter coats to children and adults alike. And of course operating the year-around food pantry which feeds so many. This is a first-class operation, through and through.
I live in the North Hills and know people who have used the organization and think very highly of them. I like that NHCO supports the North Hills community and has been able to help so many people in multiple ways.
As a long-time resident of Pine Township, I have been exposed to a variety of NHCO efforts over the years. I would like to personally thank the organization for continuing to strengthen the Northern Allegheny County region.
