Neighbor for NeighborNeighbor for Neighbor has been in Tulsa almost 45 years. It’s strategically located to provide services for low income, indigent, uninsured, disenfranchised people.

Ann Smith Executive Director explains that there are two categories of services provided by Neighbor For Neighbor: survival for clients who don’t have their food, shelter, or basic medical care met and guidance for clients who are willing and wanting to move forward to a more sustainable place in life. Neighbor for Neighbor’s ten programs are the medical clinic, dental clinic, optometry clinic, prescription clinic, legal clinic, emergency services, food pantry, community projects, housing program and life skills program. Smith says that with no government or United Way funding, the organization is "truly neighbors helping their neighbors." They operate from in-kind donations and partnerships with other organizations. She says that seven years ago Neighbor For Neighbor purchased and moved into Northland Center and re-organized the whole structure of the organization providing more accountability, delegation of responsibilities, and skill level of staff. Because of this Neighbor for Neighbor was able to dramatically increase the amount of services they provide. In 2007 they added their life skills program with life skills coaching, job placement, and other individualized needs.

 
Smith says, “Neighbor For Neighbor is Tulsans helping their neighbors. And we would love to have some more professional volunteers. We need more doctors, more lawyers, more dentists.” She also said that they need people who will hold food drives. In their life skills program they have nutrition and cooking classes and are short on food, especially healthy food. Smith says, “We help a lot of people in a variety of ways, whatever their needs are and we meet them where they are and help them move forward.” Churches, workplaces, or organizations that would like to hold food drives for Neighbor For Neighbor can contact Beth Ann Conroy at 918-425-5578 ext. 128. Medical professionals interested in volunteering can call Beth Ann Conroy as well.
 
Neighbor For Neighbor accepts donations of clothes, medicine bottles, food, money, and children’s toys. Toys are given to parents at their annual Christmas party, so that parents can give the toys to their kids as Christmas gifts. Neighbor For Neighbor’s Christmas party is 5 nights with about 100 kids each night. Also, volunteer groups from Sunday School classes or organizations are needed for the Christmas party.
