Springfield NHS Busy….and Getting Busier
In 1978, facing a deteriorating housing stock in their neighborhood, a small group of residents banded together to address the problem. They dedicated themselves to increasing the quality of life in their community through housing rehabilitation, increasing home ownership opportunity and resident empowerment.
Since that time Springfield NHS has expanded its staff, its service areas, as well as the number of services it offers, building a solid reputation for outstanding service along the way.
Over the years the agency has built an impressive record: with over 50 houses rehabilitated, nearly 200 new homes built and hundreds of individuals counseled through home ownership problems. However, as the times have changed, so have the challenges.
Whereas, in the beginning, the agency’s focus was on simply “bringing houses in the neighborhood up to code”, over the years that focus has grown into providing housing rehabilitation services, new home construction, mortgage products and a full range of housing related counselling services. And now, with the economic downturn foreclosure prevention, loan modification and reverse mortgages have significantly added to the demand for the agency services.
But regardless, home ownership remains a vital part of the American dream. So, whether you re trying to buy a house, keep your home or transform your neighborhood into a community, Springfield NHS stands ready to support you every step of the way.
As the challenges around housing continue to change, we intend to evolve with them to ensure that you receive the kind of service you need, deserve, and that we’re committed to providing.
Our trained and dedicated staff remain committed to our basic mission of transforming families and revitalizing neighborhoods through sustainable home ownership.
