About WNHNN

 

The mission of the Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors is to provide one-time emergency assistance to Windham residents experiencing a critical need for fuel, help direct individuals to appropriate long-term resources, and promote a culture of neighbors helping neighbors.

 

History

 

Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors , a 501 c3 non-profit, was founded in October 2007 and is made up of Windham volunteers who have come together to provide one time emergency assistance to those Windham residents who require immediate heating fuel. We focus our resources towards those people who have fallen through the cracks and either don’t qualify or are in a bureaucratic process waiting for assistance from other entities. Neighbors Helping Neighbors is funded totally through donations and 100% of funds received go directly to people who we assist.

 

Neighbors operate on a lot of donations: labor, hours and ideas and funding through contributions of money and goods from concerned individuals and businesses. There is no charge to the recipients. This is as pure a neighborly venture as one could find! Neighbors help folks in need negotiate the system which is in place to provide assistance, and during the inevitable waiting period, provides immediate help networking. Many volunteers are involved including retirees, working moms, legislators and business owners.

 

Neighbors have provided assistance to dozens in a variety of ways. Confidentiality is the key!
