It is hard to believe it is now three years since NhN was founded and two years since the Neighbors-helping-Neighbors USA's first anniversary which we held here in Ridgewood Library Auditorium. We had 200+ people attend our first ever group meeting which we organized for our First Anniversary which we named One Year and Counting... at that time we had 320 members and 37 success stories...
Last year at the event Bergen County United way paid for us to use the Hilton Hotel on January 25, 2013 we have grown to over 1150+ members and 235 success stories...
This year we celebrate over 360+ success stories and a membership of about 1200. We are now in 3 states with 24 weekly locations. When we realize that our members who are committed to our program and attend weekly meetings as we estimate about 200-250 that do or 20% of our total membership then we have close to a 100% success rate for those who do. This creates a need to always be recruiting new members and training new volunteer facilitators for our weekly local groups.
We have our 501 3 c paperwork complete and submitted as we await our approvals back, and hope to start our fund raising to insure our continued growth and development.
The NhN web site was voted one of the top 100 career sites by Forbes.com. We opened a very successful guest speaker program at Montclair State University and we continue to have seminars at Monmouth University and attend job fairs at Bergen Community, Passaic Community College.
We hosted a 90 day pilot of e-learning with Metrix Learning thanks to our friends in Washington DC who directed them to us, 30 members were able to improve their skills able to take as many classes online as they chose to all free of charge.
We were able to have a small group of NhN members meet with Secretary of Labor tom Perez for 90 minutes to discuss all the issues impacting our job searches
