Working together to make a difference
Everyone deserves to live in a safe, affordable community. Home is more than a set of coordinates—it can have a powerful impact on quality of life, stability, and health. NeighborWorks America has been striving for 40 years to ensure that individuals and families have opportunities to thrive, find pathways out of poverty and revitalize their communities. There are millions who still live without these resources. We can reach them, and you can help.
"We're excited to be able to help share the ideas and strategies that make rental housing more accessible and sustainable for individuals and families across the country."
