Neighborhood House awarded Bank of America Neighborhood Builders program

Neighborhood House and Volunteers of America Utah have been named as the inaugural Bank of America Neighborhood Builders program awardees in Utah. Neighborhood Builders is Bank of America’s signature philanthropic program that advances economic mobility and nonprofit leadership. Neighborhood House was awarded this honor specifically for providing access to critical wraparound, mental health, housing, and healthcare services, as well as affordable family support, youth programs, pre-school and adult care.

Neighborhood House plans to use the funds from Bank of America to help expand capacity and services to reach more clients and close its funding gap by covering the difference between what families can afford to pay based on the sliding fee scale and the overall cost of program. ”Neighborhood House is so honored to be in the one of the first in Utah to receive the Bank of American Neighborhood Builders grant, along with Volunteers of America,” said Jennifer Nuttall, executive director, Neighborhood House. “Bank of America understands and appreciates the need that nonprofits have for flexible funding, paired with capacity building. We are excited to leverage this award to rise and meet the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our neighborhood and community. This will make an enormous impact in our ability to assist struggling families to restabilize and provide the resources they need for success.”
