25 Years of Helping

Originally created in 1992 in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew by WFOR-TV, CBS4, the relief effort "Rebuilding: Neighbors Helping Neighbors," consisted of a 15-line phone bank, staffed 18 hours daily with volunteers and station personnel. News reporters and anchors broadcasting live from the phone bank would tell viewers to call the phone bank if they were storm victims or if they simply wanted to help. Special reports profiling affected families and volunteer efforts also served to motivate viewers into action. The response was overwhelming and the phone bank quickly became a tool in assisting those in crisis. 

As South Florida recovered, a decision was made to continue Neighbors as a separate 501 © 3 nonprofit.  Neighbors became an important resource for all individuals and families facing every-day crises. With the power of television as one of its greatest assets, Neighbors 4 Neighbors quickly expanded its services beyond hurricane relief and evolved into one of the most effective vehicles for connecting those in need with those who can help, forging a strong relationship with community and business leaders willing to tackle difficult issues.
