About

Developing Homes, Transforming Lives

 

This is the foundation of our mission. Through partnership and collaboration, NeighborWorks® New Horizons creates homes, builds communities and revitalizes neighborhoods where families and individuals can enjoy a better quality of life.

NWNH housing opportunities provide quality, healthy and safe environments that are supported by self-development efforts and goal-driven programs. Our objective is for residents to achieve economic stability.

Residents invest in their communities by volunteering for local organizations and working on NeighborWorks® New Horizons sponsored projects. We offer homeownership, financial, educational, youth and leadership development programs.

Taking a Regional Approach

NeighborWorks® New Horizons was established in 1992, as the Mutual Housing Association of South Central CT, with the mission of improving the critically short supply of housing available to low-to-moderate income households in the New Haven Region. In 2008, NWNH expanded into New London County, Hartford County, and Fairfield County to provide affordable housing solutions for families, towns and cities throughout Connecticut.

At NeighborWorks® New Horizons we believe that housing is just the first step. True change comes through resident self-achievement efforts, leadership development and investment in their community.

Our parent organization, NeighborWorks® America provides training opportunities for residents, staff, board members and community residents which gives them the tools and motivation to create a positive impact in their communities.
