Neighborhood Housing Services

Neighborhood Housing Services' mission is to revitalize communities by increasing the number of homeowners and transforming vacant or substandard properties into sustainable homeownership, and to improve quality of life through informed community building initiatives, leadership development, education, outreach and collaboration.  At NHS, we help people to prepare for and achieve the dream of homeownership.  We build and renovate quality homes for working families who can afford to buy; and we help neighbors develop their leadership and conflict resolution skills for strong, vibrant communities.
