When communities struggle, whatever the cause, a unique opportunity exists to look past immediate needs and focus on long-term recovery. NeighborWorks America is committed to seizing this opportunity by helping to build resilient communities with vibrant economies, employment opportunities, strong businesses and stable housing markets in which families want to invest. 

Resilient communities are built to last. So when challenges and disruptions happen, these communities have the resources and the infrastructure in place to bounce back in sustainable ways.
