Neighborhood Housing Services of New York City, Inc.

About Us

Neighborhood Housing Services of New York City’s (NHSNYC) mission is to revitalize underserved neighborhoods by creating and preserving affordable housing and providing opportunities for homeownership education, financial assistance and community leadership. Working in partnership with government and business, we are led by local residents and guided by local needs. NHSNYC's work focuses on three core areas: Neighborhood Stabilization and Homeownership Preservation which encompasses mortgage finance assistance and lending services for housing and emergency repair or efficiency projects, comprehensive homeownership education, and homeownership preservation support through foreclosure intervention services and home maintenance training; Financial Coaching Support to help clients who receive our individual homeownership and foreclosure intervention counseling services create balanced household budgets aligning monthly expenses with available income; and Resident Leadership and Community Building through awareness campaigns, community organizing and leadership development programs. By effectively responding to the needs of our clients, NHSNYC has become the largest multi-site provider of direct homeownership services in New York City. NHSNYC serves the metropolitan area of NYC through its central office and network of neighborhood offices: NHS of Bedford-Stuyvesant, NHS of East Flatbush, NHS of Northern Queens, NHS of the North Bronx, and NHS of the South Bronx. In 2013, NHSNYC established a new office in Canarsie to expand our presence in underserved communities. NHSNYC is a certified CDFI and HUD-approved housing counseling agency. We are also a chartered member of NeighborWorks™ America (NW), a national network of more than 235 affordable housing and community development organizations in all 50 states.
