OUR PROGRAMS

As a United Methodist Community Center, Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House strives to bring God’s Love to all people—the poor, the oppressed, and the homeless. We believe that God has truly hidden Himself within these faces. There are thousands of children and families in our community who are suffering tremendous hardships, who often have no one to turn to, and have given up hope. As a Mission of the United Methodist Church, the Neighborhood House believes that “in God’s Name all things are possible.” The Board, staff and volunteers are putting their faith into action and developing new and innovative programs that are helping to build a brighter future for all God’s children.
