Back To Top



Neighborhood House serves as a community center in the Portland neighborhood by Meeting Life Needs, Teaching Life Skills and Inspiring Life Dreams. Programs are provided for infants through senior adults living in Portland and surrounding West Louisville neighborhoods. 1) Our Child Development Center provides a safe, nurturing, early learning environment for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years old. Our focus is to ensure our children are on track developmentally, develop a life-long love of learning, and that our preschooler graduates are ready for success as they start kindergarten. 2) Our Youth Development Program provides an “out-of-school time” environment where youth (ages 6-18) grow socially and developmentally and have opportunities to improve their educational successes. Youth learn character development skills, life skills and educational skills through academic support, recreation, the arts, college and career activities and leadership opportunities. Kids Cafe - provides any child a nutritious meal six days each week in addition to breakfast and lunch during the summer. 3) Through “Family Services”, we strengthen the impact on a child by also serving the parents/ adults in their lives. We have an array of opportunities for parents to be engaged with their children. Individual services are provided in the way of “coaching” parents to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals. Services include leadership training, parenting support groups and workshops, financial literacy and health-focused activities. Programming is provided for senior adults to improve the quality of their lives. Emergency food assistance is also available.
