House of Neighborly Service (HNS) is a comprehensive resource agency, which assists those who find themselves in critical situations with a wide variety of basic life-sustaining emergency services. Our goal as an agency is to provide “help for today and hope for tomorrow” as we directly impact the living conditions for low-income and impoverished residents as well as those who have found themselves in an economic crisis. “Help for Today…” refers to the immediate services we provide to families and individuals that come to HNS with emergency requests when their situation has reached a critical level of need. The services and programs HNS provide are: Food, Clothing, Emergency Shelter, Prescriptions, Special Medical, Back-to-School Program, Utility Assistance, Christmas Program, Transportation, Birthday Closet, screenings for City of Loveland LIP Programs, Financial Education Program and childcare for all in house education programs. HNS also offers some transitional housing through the Angel House Program. “Hope for Tomorrow…” describes the continues support that is provided by our caseworkers meeting individually with each client guiding them through referrals, recommendations to other programs, scheduling of educational classes, or phone calls made on their behalf to increase their success within their current situation as we help promote families to self-reliance.
During 2012, our agency provided 39,972 services to 20,012 individuals in need. We served 5,443 food baskets to 11,933 clients. We provided clothing for 2,335 families, helped 445 individuals with their transportation needs, provided 1,119 special medical assistance and prescriptions, distributed Back-to-School gift cards to 441 children, helped 719 households with utility costs, and provided shelter for 540 families and individuals, with a total number of 2,120 shelter nights.
