What is Good Neighbors?
Good Neighbors is a 501 (c) (3) community ministry. Our mission is to help lift our Blount County neighbors out of a temporary crisis. Good Neighbors provides resources to maintain and/or increase the ability of our neighbors to cope with the challenges of everyday life. We do this in an atmosphere of love and respect, building partnerships through which Christ’s love can grow and by advocating for social justice within Blount County. Good Neighbors is funded by local area churches, individuals, BCEAC, United Way and other civic groups.
Good Neighbors was founded in 1996 as a result of an increase in requests for emergency assistance from neighbors in need to local area churches. These churches decided to pool their resources so that they might make a greater impact on those they were serving.
