Client Served

Rating: 5

Organized, welcoming and accepting. Since we tumbled through the recession with multiple job and housing losses, Rochester Area Neighborhood House has been there with some words of comfort and often an outpouring of help. Food, clothing, a newsletter for job hunting, advice on financial assistance and help with those little special things for the children that they otherwise wouldn't have like Holiday gifts, back to school items and so much more. There is even a counselor if you are feeling blue! One of Rochester's shining gems and a true fighter for the poor, elderly and disabled.
