Neighborhood Housing Services of New Haven
Neighborhood Housing Services of New Haven positions neighborhoods to succeed by making homes beautiful, energy-efficient, and affordable while helping residents take charge of their neighborhoods.NHS of New Haven is committed to the revitalization of New Haven's disadvantaged neighborhoods through affordable housing development, homeownership counseling and education, and community engagement. Our revitalization strategy is multifaceted, as it involves both the physical restoration of houses and the engagement of local residents to create clusters of active community involvement on our target blocks. Our homeowners join with other families to improve the safety, communication, and interconnectedness of their neighborhoods. By acquiring and rehabilitating vacant, abandoned houses and selling them to low-income first-time buyers, NHS provides affordable homeownership opportunities while creating stability on a block. Our HomeOwnership Center provides counseling services and classes to help customers purchase a home or avoid foreclosure. We also offer hands-on home maintenance and energy conservation classes in our LEED? Platinum Home Improvement and Energy Conservation Laboratory that provide information on cost-saving do-it-yourself maintenance techniques as well as ways of making energy-efficient improvements to one's home.
