Mission Statement

The mission of East Side Neighborhood Services is to build pathways towards equity by disrupting social and economic barriers. Our vision is that every person thrives, every voice matters.


East Side Neighborhood Services has been a centerpiece of the community for over a century and is a hub for a wide range of services to children and families. Our goals are to help young children (ages 0-6) become school ready; support the ability of youth (ages 6-19) to develop the skills and social responsibility they need to succeed in school and in life; for adults to develop employment and life skills that support income and family stability, healthy relationships, and increased civic engagement; assist older adults to meet basic needs, in particular food security, and make connections that support health and well-being.
