Welcome to the Neighborhood House!

Dear Friends,


As you are aware, the State Budget Crisis is having a devastating impact on the children, families, and elderly persons throughout our community and the entire State of Illinois.


The Budget Crisis is causing serious financial problems for the majority of non-profit organizations in our state. As you know, several of our local organizations have already laid off hundreds of employees and more than 20 organizations just in the Chicago area have already closed. We need everyone to continue to make calls to our legislators and to the Governor and let them know the serious crisis that they are causing the children and families in our community.



William R. Kreeb, President/CEO
