The purpose of Neighbors For Kids, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, is to serve the children and youth of Lincoln County with quality after-school and summer programs.

Since 1999, NFK has provided a safe place for students to come after school, where they can be supervised by caring adults in a fun, learning environment. Our after-school program, Kids Zone, is open Mondays through Fridays from 3:00 to 6:30 pm on all regular school days. Kids Zone also offers a 9-week summer program.

We provide a healthy meal, accompanied by nutrition education and hands-on practice preparing and cooking food.  Our students get help with homework and tutoring in math and reading, as well as the opportunity to participate in enrichment activities such as art, music, computers and science.

Our experienced staff and volunteers are dedicated to helping kids reach their full potential in a positive environment.

Neighbors for Kids started as a grassroots, community effort to give Depoe Bay youth the best chance to succeed.  Because of ongoing community support and collaborations with local government and vibrant, dedicated community partners, NFK continues to thrive.
