WE’RE INVESTING IN NEW HAVEN’S NEIGHBORHOODS. WHEN YOU INVEST IN NHS, YOU DO, TOO !
IN NEW HAVEN, ONLY 43% OF RESIDENTS CAN AFFORD THEIR HOUSING COSTS.
NHS New Haven is revitalizing New Haven via social, economic, and environmental health. Our holistic approach to development merges community building with direct services.
40 YEARS OF IMPACT INVESTING GOES A LONG WAY
We renovate distressed homes – nearly 300 to date, providing housing for over 500 families in underserved neighborhoods of New Haven.
We teach hundreds of people financial literacy skills like budgeting and how to save money by maintaining their home and making energy saving adjustments.
Last year we counseled 113 people facing foreclosure
“NHS has a history of fulfilling the vision, a commitment to community – not just building a house but building a community. I’m certainly proud to have been a small part of what they’ve done.”
~ Jackie Downing
Community Foundation For Greater New Haven
“NHS is unique because they work with residents to help strengthen themselves personally and together to strengthen the neighborhood.”

Every year, NHS participates in a number of tax credit programs, including Connecticut’s Neighborhood Assistance Act program. If your company is interested in supporting a portion of our work in lieu of certain state tax obligations.
Help Us Make This Possible
The average cost to purchase, demolish the interior down to the framing, fully rehab, and landscape a home is $400,000. Our typical selling price is $185,000. Your donations help us to improve living and environmental conditions for New Haven residents.
Help Families Become Housing Secure
64% of children living in New Haven come from families with low incomes, which puts them at greater risk of being unable to afford their homes.
Provide Financial Literacy Training for Those in Need
Our HomeOwnershipCenter offers free homebuyer training and support. It costs NHS $600 to run a single class.
