Good Neighbor Settlement House

Since its inception in 1953, Good Neighbor Settlement House has helped and served those in need. It started by helping the community at Buena Vida Barrio, but as Brownsville grew, GNSH has correspondingly evolved and expanded its services to include serving the hungry, unsheltered, and migrants. Nowadays we are a beacon of hope and love for many in our community. We strive to empower our clients with the support and tools they need to overcome homelessness once they are ready and prepared. Moreover, we aim to offer some respite to migrants who just arrived in our country.
