Call to Service: NeighborImpact Board of Directors

  • Have you ever had trouble making ends meet?
  • Do you care about people who are struggling?
  • Do you have a few hours a month to give to make your community better for economically disadvantaged citizens?

Consider serving on a NeighborImpact board committee.

Currently, there are no open seats on the board of directors. However, NeighborImpact is seeking community members to serve on its board committees. Your insights can shape how Central Oregon’s largest provider of social services helps the region take care of its most vulnerable citizens. There are four board committees focusing on: early care & education; community services; finance; and housing, assets and lending. Click on the committee for more information.

No prior experience necessary. Your voice is all that is needed. Please volunteer today.
