North Hills Community Outreach - Tribute to Our 50th Anniversary

Donations made to North Hills Community OutreachEvery month, North Hills Community Outreach (NHCO) receives thank you notes like this one from Tara, a widowed Mom who is working and raising four children:
“You can’t even imagine the panic I felt in the months after my husband died. On top of my own grief and helping my kids work through their grief in their own ways, I began to seriously stress about how I would pay the bills and feed the kids. Not just big bills like the house, but small things like car inspection and school clothes. The programs NHCO has are lifesavers. God bless the donors and volunteers who care about my family and other people who have hit hard times. I met with someone to work out a budget and someone else helped me with a resume. I was able to get full-time work. I even got help with my gas bill when it was sky high. My kids had backpacks for school, some new clothes and shoes for school and even some Christmas gifts. Thank you so much. Thank everyone for me.”
