NeighborWorks Lincoln is a nonprofit organization with the mission to revitalize neighborhoods and support homeownership, keeping Lincoln a safe and prosperous community. NeighborWorks encourages better neighborhoods by:
- Empowering strong resident leadership through collaboration with city departments and community partners;
- Facilitating sustainable homeownership through homebuyer education and assistance; and
- Developing desirable housing for economically diverse clientele in Lincoln’s core neighborhoods.
Throughout its 36 years of service to Lincoln, Nebraska, NeighborWorks Lincoln has become a local leader in the community development sector and the preeminent facilitator of affordable homeownership opportunities. The current lines of business include (1) developing desirable housing through rehabilitation and construction, (2) strengthening neighborhoods by building capacity and empowering residents, and (3) facilitating sustainable homeownership through homebuyer education and an empowering down payment assistance program. All three lines of business work together to support neighborhood stabilization and advancement.
In June, as a local affiliate NeighborWorks Lincoln will join NeighborWorks America and the nearly 250 other NeighborWorks organizations serving communities across the country to celebrate National NeighborWorks Week. Every year, thousands of residents, businesses, and local elected and civic leaders nationwide participate in local celebrations of the impact NeighborWorks organizations have in their respective communities.
