The GoodNeighbor Project
and what we do
The GoodNeighbor Project was founded in 2021 by a group of University of Maryland students who felt there was a need for more community action against homelessness in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
Our mission is to connect people that are homeless with services that can aid them. We also directly participate in community efforts to alleviate homelessness by partnering with various organizations to host service events. Our organization is based on grassroots community action, with support from volunteers, community leaders, non-profits, and legislators.
We host monthly service events with our partners in the College Park area, which includes soup kitchens, shelters, churches, food drives, political events, and more.
We also host monthly social events for anyone in the community, whether or not they are affiliated with GoodNeighbor. These events consist of picnics, book clubs, move nights, and more.
Lastly, our organization creates educational materials on current resources available to people that are homeless. These resources may include shelters, food, insurance, VA assistance, and mental health resources.
