The Problem

Youth living in poverty or at-risk of homelessness struggle due to their lack of basic needs being fulfilled. Additionally, resources are not organized to be distributed effectively to those in need, and children not being able to plan effectively for the future, causing them to be stuck in an infinite loop. How do we find these resources, synthesize them, and provide them to those who need it most?

Our Solution

Neighbors in Need caters to at-risk youth’s personalized needs by providing them with the basic necessities on a day-to-day basis. We give donors an opportunity to connect with the receiver on a personal level; while providing a seamless donation experience that integrates with their day-to-day shopping routine.
