Northside Neighborhood House
Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA
MissionTo promote the independence of residents north of the river in Chattanooga by providing a hand up through education and assistance.
What We DoThe NNH helps the community through stability and education work.
1. The Stability work includes emergency financial help with utilities, prescriptions and food. Two distributions during school supply and Christmas help ease times of the year where extra financial burdens exist. Adult high school equivalency degrees and computer access to complete job applications and resumes are also available. Three thrift stores provide access to affordable clothing, household items and furniture.
2. Education programming includes afterschool and summer tutoring and enrichment programs for elementary, middle and high school students. Community Schools are designed to provide wrap-around supports to meet the physical, social, and emotional needs of the community in which the school is located.
