Economically disadvantaged applicants and those who work with the economically disadvantaged are invited to apply.

Service on the board is uncompensated, but reasonable travel and childcare expenses will be reimbursed. Individuals who serve as a NeighborImpact board or committee member play a significant role in building success and in changing families’ lives by supporting NeighborImpact in its service to the community.
