NRS Housing initiative
our housing initiative
Our goal is to enrich the quality of life for our community. We revitalize our community by providing tools and knowledge necessary for homeownership. We turn vacant properties into homes and renters into homeowners. We also provide resources for home renovation. Homeownership and renovations increase economic assets and develop a sense of community by building pride, interest and concern for our neighborhoods.
We have several programs that meet our communities needs and help us reach our goals
