About Us

Good Neighbor House was founded out of a collaboration of eight Dayton area Seventh-Day Adventist churches who desired to make a difference by helping to meet the needs of the under-served in the Dayton Community. So in 1994, the congregations came together to form the Good Neighbor House, a non profit organization that provides food pantry services, clothing, and household items to under-served individuals and families in the Miami Valley. As the need for affordable health care increased within Dayton's working uninsured community, so did Good Neighbor House's vision.

In 1996, through partnerships and collaborations with various community organizations, GNH established a clinic dedicated to providing medical, dental, and vision services to the working uninsured community. In addition, the clinic offers health education and screenings to under-served families.

​Today, Good Neighbor House offers a full range of Human and Health Services to the community as we collaborate with many local agencies to assist clients. Through the contributions of dedicated donors and volunteers, the agency is funded and supported by monetary and in kind donations that help to make a tremendous difference in the lives of many throughout the Miami Valley.
