Inspiring Hope through Relationships

At its heart, Good Neighbors, Inc. is about showing God’s love through relationships.

  • Relationships that bring hope for self-sufficiency to Appalachian “working poor” families through home and automobile repairs.
  • Relationships where youth and adult volunteers grow through service in Appalachia and are inspired to make a difference in people’s lives in their own communities.

A relationship with a working Appalachian family often starts with an all too common event. The only vehicle breaks down. The heater in the house stops working. Mold and mildew are found in walls in the bathroom. The cost of repairs means tough choices. Make repairs or buy groceries? Make repairs or keep insurance?  Since they are employed, the family is not eligible for most public or private assistance. So the family is referred to Good Neighbor’s, Inc., an organization that focuses on working with families who can demonstrate regular employment, great need and are willing to put “skin in the game” with their own resources.

Once accepted, family members are soon working side-by-side with staff and volunteers in making repairs or renovations. The family makes a financial contribution – no matter the amount –toward the work. For five weeks the family goes through a financial planning seminar to help the family become self-sufficient and learn to bless others. Throughout this time the family deepens the new relationships with people who are honestly concerned about the family’s future.  Larger renovation projects become service opportunities for church groups and other organizations. Now relationships are multiplied, with guests from outside Appalachia learning local history, culture and values. Everyone contributes to the project according to his or her own ability. The effect of the experience is often long lasting, inspiring participants to find similar ways to serve in their own communities.

Good Neighbors needs your help!  We need to raise $30,000 to ensure that we can continue operating and showing God's love to these families for the next year.  Please consider partnering with us to continue making a difference in Appalachia by helping us reach our goal!
