Strengthening Communities for Over 30 Years....
Neighborhood Housing Services of Los Angeles County (NHS) serves as a catalyst for local residents, business and government representatives to work together to build stronger neighborhoods, improve the quality of life for low to moderate income families of modest means and to revitalize communities into neighborhoods of choice.
NHS strengthens communities through the development and maintenance of quality affordable housing, creation and preservation of affordable homeownership opportunities, support of local leaders, providing financial education and increasing the financial independence of families and people in need.
Incorporated in 1984, Neighborhood Housing Services of Los Angeles County (NHS) has catapulted from a small local housing agency to the largest, non-profit affordable homeownership provider in Southern California. NHS is part of the NeighborWorks® America national network.
Today, NHS provides work for over 45 employees serving clients throughout Los Angeles County. Fueled by passion and determination, the staff and volunteers are committed to revitalizing communities, building stronger neighborhoods and helping families of modest means actualize their dream of homeownership.
Since 1984, NHS has developed and rehabilitated over 21,000 housing and commercial units, placed 4.4 million families on the road to homeownership, created 225 block clubs, employed over 230 neighborhood youth, and invested more than $4.7 billion back into some of Los Angeles County's toughest neighborhoods. We touch the lives of more than one million households as a member of NeighborWorks America and as an affiliate Community Development Financial Institution dedicated to revitalizing LMI neighborhoods destabilized by blight and economic divestiture. NHS serves all low-to-moderate income census tracts throughout Los Angeles County through our education and counseling work.
