"People HelpING PEople"


The Neighbors’ Place is a homegrown community center providing a hand up to residents of Marathon County and the surrounding communities. In 1989, The Neighbors' Place was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization after nearly a decade of effort by members of several area churches that came together to address some of the needs they saw in our community. Our mission is a simple one: to be “People Helping People.” We are here to work collaboratively, listen respectfully, and care actively – treating everyone who comes through our doors with dignity.

We provide the following programs and services (free of charge) to those who need them:

Food Bank & Food Pantry

The Babies' Place

Wheels Again

Community Gardens 

Community Learning Center

These programs are possible because our community cares. Local businesses, organizations, and individuals share their time, talent, and treasure because our community sees the difference their participation makes. Feel free to explore our website  — or get in touch with us — to learn more about who we are and what we do.
