Aston Township’s Neighbors Helping Neighbors (NHN) is an outreach program whose mission is to assist neighbors in times of need throughout the year with the help of community participation. The program has been setup to give temporary relief to families in Aston Township that have little or no means of support. The families who receive help have fallen on tough times and may be out of work due to injuries or company downsizing. The goal is to help minimize their stress while they are actively seeking gainful employment.
