Change the World on Your Street
The Neighbor In Need mission is to help low income elderly living in the communities of East Lake, Kirkwood and Edgewood, East Atlanta and Decatur’s Oakhurst Community make emergency home repairs. Repairs can include heating and cooling, plumbing, electrical, roofing and light construction like repairs to soffit, sheetrock, porches, flooring, etc. Basically, Neighbor in Need tries to tackle anything that degrades the quality of life for the homeowner or devalues the home.
Neighbor in Need is 100% volunteer run. The money you give goes directly into action for our elderly neighbors as a result. We have very low overhead and provide quality licensed and insured work at no charge to those we help.
The Neighbor In Need program works with corporate partners such as Coolray Heating and Air, Mr. Plumber Atlanta, Sherwin Williams, Arrow Exterminators, and Georgia Pressure and Steam to make sure the money you donate to us will go as far as possible for our elderly neighbors.
We currently serve in the Atlanta communities of East Lake, Kirkwood and Edgewood, East Atlanta and Oakhurst in Decatur, support our program with hands-on action, fundraising for individual projects, and your direct donations. The East Lake Community covers East Lake, Kirkwood and Edgewood. The East Atlanta and Oakhurst Communities raise their own money and serve their communities independently. We can teach your community how to start your own Neighbor in Need! Just contact us to get started.
We do not seek out or write grants for tax dollars.This website is the place where you can help. All of the money you give here will go directly to serve our long time elderly homeowners. You can see your money at work by visiting our online photo album that shows our volunteers hard at work.
The combination of a 100% volunteer effort, our community support and support from corporations — through deep discounting for their services, enables Neighbor In Need to provide to quality workmanship at a great price to those we serve. The value we create in the lives of our homeowners is life changing.
