The Friends are a group of dedicated volunteers who support Neighbors Link through fundraising, community outreach and advocacy.

Via annual events such as our Spring Benefit and our Fall Luncheon, the Friends raise funds to support Neighbors Link’s programs.
Community Outreach-The Friends host educational events such as film screenings and panel discussions. Individually, we engage in conversations to dispel myths surrounding immigrant issues and to present facts showing immigrants as valuable members of our community. Friends also attend local government and house of worship meetings to educate community members about Neighbors Link.

Advocacy– Under the direction of Neighbors Link, the Friends advocate for local, county, state and national legislation that promotes the healthy integration of immigrants.

The Friends are growing! We are starting to establish community branches of the Friends of Neighbors Link that focus on specific geographic areas or needs:
