ABOUT NEIGHBORHOOD TRUST

Neighborhood Trust is a nonprofit social enterprise empowering workers to take control of their finances and achieve financial health. With more than 25 years of financial coaching experience, we blend our trusted financial guidance with innovative technology solutions and actionable financial products to help workers’ paychecks go further. Neighborhood Trust embeds our services where workers get paid, access financial services, and make financial decisions.  Annually we reach more than 10,000 low-income workers across the country through our employee financial wellness benefit, TrustPlus, serving workers in 29 states at some of the nation’s leading financial institutions, benefits providers, and non-profits. 

The economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the need for Neighborhood Trust’s mission—and we have risen to the occasion to provide cash relief and financial coaching to struggling workers and families. Our crisis response underscores our commitment to addressing financial precarity, and the role our products and expertise can play in finding sustainable solutions for working families.
