NHS creates opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their neighborhoods.

NeighborWorks Day provides initiatives that revitalize neighborhoods. Neighborhood Housing Services is expanding its community partnership and demonstrating the impact of collective efforts by bringing volunteers together to gut buildings for rehab, create community gardens, paint homes, clean vacant lots, landscape and offer community safety programs.
Take this opportunity to work side by side with corporate, government and neighborhood volunteers. The results have both short and long-term value. Some projects extend the NHS presence onto a block for the first time and introduce residents to NHS community revitalization initiatives. Others bring resources and support to rid a neighborhood of problematic vacant lots and abandoned houses.
