Meet the Team

Hello Neighbor is a collective and community effort. We are a small but mighty team! In addition to our staff, we have a committed group of interpreters, contractors, photographers, friends, fellows, interns and more that help us do what we do. We couldn’t do this work without everyone’s collaborative effort, including the dedicated mentors, mentees, and volunteers in our programs.
