Our Mission and Purpose

Jackson Neighbors In Need was formed as an all volunteer organization in 2009 in order to ensure that all residents of Jackson County would have access to adequate warmth during the cold winter months. This organization is comprised of representatives from community organizations, local governments, churches, local colleges/universities and individual volunteers that collaborate to assist individuals and families in having a warm home or a safe shelter during the cold weather months.

Jackson Neighbors In Need supports and provides three programs in order to accomplish this mission: weatherization of homes; an emergency cold weather shelter; and a heating assistance program.
