NeighborWorks Network

The NeighborWorks network is made up of nearly 250 nonprofit organizations across the United States, including the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The network was born from the ideas and passion of individual residents who believed they could transform their communities. We consider local voices critical to the success of the work of our network organizations and their communities.

Network organizations serve diverse populations in large and small, and rural and urban communities. Organizations are rigorously assessed against various organizational, financial and board governance standards and must maintain certain standards to remain within the network. Our network includes some of the very best community development and affordable housing organizations in the country which invest in results for the communities and individuals they serve. The network focuses on collaboration through peer sharing and ongoing professional development, so each group can improve and the community development field as a whole can benefit. Organizations offer services and approaches to meet the unique needs of their community, offering a range of services, from homeownership counseling to the development of a variety of housing types to community gardens.
