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.

NeighborImpact is seeking community members to serve on its board committees. If you do not meet the requirements for an open board of directors seat, you may consider serving on a committee, instead. 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 three board committees focusing on: financelending, and board development; and one board advisory committee: diversity, equity & inclusion. Click on the committee link for more information.

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