Neighbors in Need of Assistance (NINA) Mission

The NINA Emergency Fund assists families in the Oregon-Brooklyn School district who have children under 18 with funding for rent and utilities in emergency situations. The fund collects donations from individuals and organizations in the Oregon-Brooklyn community and disburses over $25,000 in assistance each year. This program is administered by Joe Sullivan, Oregon’s social worker through the statewide “Joining Forces for Families” program, which is a service of the Dane County Department of Human Services.
