About Neighbor-to-Neighbor LifeLine (N2N)
Neighbor-to-Neighbor LifeLine was created at the height of the financial crisis to help people meet emergency needs.
Five years later, many people in Greater New Haven are still reeling from the crash, living paycheck to paycheck. Losing a few hours of work because of a blizzard, illness, or other unforeseen events, can keep them from being able to pay the rent or feed their children.
The good news: quick, effective assistance with housing costs or healthy food helps people get through their crisis and return to self-sufficiency. That’s why we are as committed as ever to Neighbor-to-Neighbor LifeLine, a partnership between United Way of Greater New Haven and the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven. It was designed to get resources to people in crisis as quickly and efficiently as possible. 100% of your contribution goes directly to those in need right here in Greater New Haven. Every dollar you contribute makes a real difference in people’s lives.
The need for services and assistance remains high and affects one third of the residents in our community. Please consider making a contribution this year to Neighbor-to-Neighbor LifeLine. Our neighbors are counting on us.
