Helping Lubbock County families during vulnerable times

Upbring Neighborhood House was founded in 1967 when we were known as Lutheran Social Services of the South, as an emergency assistance program. Here, we provide families with children, people with disabilities and the elderly with food vouchers, hygiene products, prescriptions, utility assistance and other life necessities.

More than 7,000 families in Lubbock County receive help from Neighborhood House each year.
