Sacramento Neighborhood Housing Services, Inc., a pre-eminent nonprofit community development organization in Sacramento , was created in 1987 by a group of committed community, business and government leaders to address the affordable housing needs of the Sacramento region. Currently, doing business as NeighborWorks Home Ownership Center Sacramento Region or NeighborWorks Sacramento, it serves an 11-county region through a range of comprehensive community development services that promote healthy neighborhoods, access to healthy food, sustainable home ownership, financial empowerment and the development of high quality affordable housing.

Since our founding, we have educated 24,140 families in the home buying process, 4,515 of which have become homeowners, acquiring more than $220 million in real estate. And during the previous housing crisis, it helped thousands of families avoid foreclosure. Also, our organization has rehabbed or built 193 affordable homes for low-to-moderate income families with an additional economic impact of $46.5million. These homes have stimulated the real estate market while helping families build wealth. In addition, our down payment assistance program has provided $16.5 million for customers buying their first home. The work we do in these communities is enhanced by Paint the Town, where 10,635 volunteers have completed 481 beautification projects in low-wealth neighborhoods, with a total investment of $240,500.

We are particularly proud of our 2 Farmer Markets which serve more than 26,000 families each year. Our CalFresh/EBT incentives match doubles the power of low-income families to purchase healthy food. Since we launched our first Farmers Market in 2010, we have provided more than $250,000 in EBT benefits to more than 8,000 families. This support has allowed them to purchase more than 1 million servings of quality, locally grown, healthy food.
