When you decide you are ready to buy a house, whether it’s for the first time or you’ve been through the experience before, you have lots of questions – about mortgages, credit, inspections, neighborhoods and many other things.

NeighborWorks® is a one-stop-shop, providing all the answers and support a homebuyer needs- homebuyer education, realty, financial coaching, foreclosure counseling, and more.

What makes NeighborWorks® different is our non-profit mission: to build great communities, one dream home at a time. That means we keep the buyer’s best interests front and center throughout the home buying process, from the day they come through our door to the day we hand them the keys to a home of their own and beyond.

With an annual operating budget of $2 million and net assets of more than $2.8 million, NWSOMA has a staff of 20 full- and part-time employees.
