In 1909, Rev. John McGann of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Columbus, Ohio and a group of volunteers decided to do something about the needs of the people living in the Panhandle, extending north of the church to the Pennsylvania Railroad Yards. The inhabitants were immigrants who were alone, poor and hardly understood. They were without a sense of belonging. Their children were lacking both recreational and educational facilities.
The Neighborhood House, Inc. has volunteer opportunities for individuals who want to give back to the community. Whether a person is looking to give back to the community or fulfill community service hours, we offer opportunities for volunteerism in areas such as unloading truck deliveries, clerical support, answering incoming telephone calls, and many other duties within our various departments and program.
