2017 Awards Dinner
We hope you will join us as we raise funds for Erie Neighborhood House’s comprehensive – and effective – initiatives. Proceeds will help us continue to invest in educational programs that create opportunities for success that would otherwise not exist. This year, your generosity will support the Expanded Learning Programs for Children and Youth at Erie House, a violence prevention initiative whose integrated curriculum provides a safe, supportive learning environment for students ages 5–18.

Their mission is to promote a just and inclusive society by strengthening low-income, primarily Latino families through skill-building, access to critical resources, advocacy and collaborative action.
Throughout the decades, Erie House’s nationally accredited child care, youth programming, technology training and adult education initiatives have helped thousands develop the skills necessary to meet the challenges of poverty, employability, language barriers and under-resourced schools.
