Pineville Neighbors Place was established in 2016 and is serving a huge need. Even though Pineville is a growing and trendy community, there are a huge number of working poor who need help. According to recent census data and other indices, Pineville has approximately 10% of its population living at or below the poverty level. Many of these folks are living in extended stay hotels because they can't qualify for even basic housing. We act as a conduit for assistance for these folks as well as attending to other basic needs such as hunger, literacy, and other physical needs such as supplying beds for children. All year long, Pineville Neighbors Place connects our neighbors to available services, empower them to make life sustaining choices and works to unite the community of Pineville.
