A Brief History
In 1986, when flooding ravaged portions of the North Hills, local religious and community leaders worked together to help flood victims. This effort mobilized the community into action so that resources offered by congregations, businesses, civic groups and individuals were directed to the affected families. As a result, North Hills Community Outreach was incorporated in 1987 as an organization of People Helping People. NHCO's United Way contributor choice code is 2357.
