WHY WE’RE INVESTING IN NEW HAVEN’S NEIGHBORHOODS

We envision a New Haven where all neighborhoods are vibrant and safe, and all residents are thriving in beautiful, dignified homes.

OUR IMPACT ON NEW HAVEN

Affordability

We teach homeowners how to prevent surprise repair bills by caring for their home, and how to budget for expected maintenance costs, so they can afford their home long term.

Beauty

In the last 40 years, we’ve renovated nearly 300 distressed homes to historic standards, providing beautiful, dignified housing for 504 families in underserved neighborhoods of New Haven.

Stability

In New Haven, only 43% of residents can afford their housing costs, which puts them at risk. That doesn’t work for us, so we price NHS homes below our renovation costs.

EVERYONE DESERVES A SAFE & BEAUTIFUL HOME

We spend $400,000 to purchase, demolish the interior down to the framing, fully rehab, and landscape a home. Then we sell it to a family with low or moderate income for about $185,000. Who’s losing?  No one!  It’s a win-win situation for us because we’re passionate about empowering families and revitalizing neighborhoods. Would you like to help?

YOU CAN REVITALIZE NEIGHBORHOODS

In recent years, we’ve worked with EMERGE Connecticut, Broken Arrow Nursery, the City of New Haven and various contractors to create beautiful homes for families with low and moderate incomes. Revitalize neighborhoods with us.

YOU CAN BUILD STABILITY

We couldn’t empower families and revitalize neighborhoods without great partners. Would you like to create social, economic and environmental justice for all New Haveners? We love working with colleges, architectural firms, lending institutions, and construction companies.

YOU’LL LOVE THE TRANSFORMATION

In 2018, NHS rehabilitated 7 houses to historic and Energy Star 3.0 standards, giving 9 families a place to call home.

WE’RE ALWAYS BUILDING

Right now, we have 11 homes on our docket. By the time we’re through, each will be transformed into a dignified, energy efficient home with climate-smart landscaping.

YOU INSPIRE OUR WORK

We celebrate our diverse & vibrant community with events and classes to foster safer neighborhoods where everyone can thrive.
