Second Annual “Still I Rise: Conversations with Phenomenal Women”

On November 03, 2016, we hosted our second annual fundraising show, “Still I Rise: Conversations with Phenomenal Women,” at the historic, Tony Award winning Crossroads Theatre in New Brunswick, New Jersey. This unique and inspiring show featured dramatic readings performed by some of New Jersey’s most influential and trailblazing women including Tara Dowdell, President of Tara Dowdell Group; Dr. Maris Lown, VP of Academic Affairs at Union County College; Dr. Margaret McMenamin, President of Union County College; Arlene Quinones Perez, President of the Hispanic Bar Association (NJ); Debra Tantleff, Founding Principal of TANTUM Real Estate; and Wincey Terry-Bryant, acclaimed jazz and gospel singer.

All of the proceeds from this fundraiser benefit our center expansion and renovation effort.

Parents Spotlight

On March 26th, at the kick-off event for our capital campaign, we honored Janet Walden for her unwavering commitment to Neighborhood House. Janet and her family have attended and been active parents at Neighborhood House since the late 1970s! They have volunteered and supported us in countless ways. Without the dedication and active engagement of parents like Janet, our center would not be as impactful as it is in the community, which is why we are proud to recognize Janet as our Parent of the Year.
