Outpriced but not out of luck: NeighborWorks America housing experts weigh in on helping people find and keep homes 


Empowering people to find and maintain stable housing is important in the current challenging housing market. NeighborWorks America is helping people become homeowners and overcome obstacles to retaining their homes. Vice President of National Homeownership Programs Noelle Melton and Vice President of National Initiatives Tonya Tyler are leading efforts to help ensure that people can afford to own homes, understand what is needed to stay in them, and know what resources are available. 

Our experts can discuss: 
  • What NeighborWorks America is doing to close the racial homeownership gap.
  • How NeighborWorks network organizations around the country help people get into homes and keep them.
  • How housing counselors in the NeighborWorks network can talk potential homeowners through their options and educate people who want to own a home on all aspects of homeownership.
