About NeighborWorks America

What does it mean to be a mission-driven organization? A clearly defined and executed mission guides and informs, in good times and bad, and provides context for why our work matters. The pursuit of a mission motivates employees and other stakeholders, driving long- and short-term goals. People often claim they're "on a mission," but how do they deliver on it? At the end of the day, it is one of the fundamental ways we chart our course and measure success along the way.

At the foundation of the NeighborWorks mission are nearly 250 strong, healthy and prepared network organizations in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. As a congressionally chartered and funded nonpartisan nonprofit, we support organizations that provide communities with affordable housing, financial counseling and coaching, training, and resident engagement and collaboration in the areas of health, employment and education.
