Established in 1975, Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS) of Chicago is a non-profit neighborhood revitalization organization committed to helping homeowners and strengthening neighborhoods. Our mission is to create opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives, and strengthen their neighborhoods.
NHS is a 501c3 non-profit corporation which includes five separate legal entities: Neighborhood Housing Services, Neighborhood Lending Services, Neighborhood Redevelopment Corporation and Neighborhood Redevelopment Corporation Initiatives.
Neighborhood Lending Services (NLS) is a Community Development Financial Institution Loan Fund that stabilizes and revitalizes economically distressed communities throughout metropolitan Chicago. We facilitate such revitalization by helping first-time homebuyers purchase and maintain their own homes.
