In 1916, a UW student wrote an undergraduate thesis proposing the creation of Neighborhood House to meet the needs of the growing Greenbush community. 101 years later, Neighborhood House upholds the tradition of being a welcoming space for people of all backgrounds and strives to create opportunities for the greater Madison area. Today Neighborhood House offers a plethora of programs including:
youth summer camp,
after-school mentoring and youth activities,
meeting spaces for community groups and organizations,
fitness classes and writing groups for adults,
social programming and support groups,
community meal nights
and much more.
Our mission is to provide high quality programming and social services that facilitate the growth of a diverse, responsible, and welcoming community.
Neighborhood House will create opportunities for area residents to strengthen the quality of their community by making connections, building relationships, and embracing diversity through social, educational, and recreational activities.
