Neighborhood Life House is a faith-based community non-profit 501 (c)(3) in Joplin, MO. We want to bring the life-changing light of Christ to the North Joplin community by playing an active role in the lives of adults, children, and families in the neighborhood. We believe not only in nourishing the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our neighbors, but also in being a part of bringing systemic changes to better our community and create a brighter future. Our vision is to build a strong community by empowering people to see who they can become with the help of God through discipleship, support, and empowerment.
Currently, Neighborhood Life House works predominantly with youth and families in the community providing a safe, fun environment for kids to come and learn about Christ, make new friends, learn valuable skills, and benefit their community. We run programming for elementary and middle school youth as partners with North Middle School and Columbia Elementary. We hope to continue to grow and meet more needs and desires from our community in the years to come.
We dream of a day when every child will have the developmental assets necessary to succeed in life. We dream of a day when families will have the support and encouragement they need to stay together and stay strong. We dream of a day when adults will have a place to come to when struggling with crisis or need or even how to make dreams a reality and find the support they need. Life House wants to make this possible starting with North Joplin and moving out to impact the city as a whole!
