Success Stories


Our mission has made a life-changing impact for these clients. 


Housing Specialists Walk with Client on Path to Homeownership

Janna had what it takes to become a first-time homeowner, bravery and persistence! When she came to NHP she wanted to buy her family home but had a low credit score. “I took all the advice given (from the housing specialists) and confronted my credit report instead of being scared by it. Now I’m closing on my house and I raised my credit score over 200 points! I also understand why I fell into a pattern of bad credit and what not to do in the future.”

Maintenance Helps Keep Homeowner in His House

Tommy couldn’t use his kitchen sink and needed a walk-in shower to make living at home easier. He received the much-needed plumbing and bathroom updates. Tommy was, “highly satisfied with the cleanliness of the workers, quality of the work and the project was completed on time.”

Education and Support at Every Step

Housing counseling clients said, “If you want to know how to buy a home, call them!” 

“It was a safe place to express my concerns without being judged.” 

“After talking with them, I had clear next steps in easy-to-understand terms.”

“They helped me feel more comfortable and confident in the homebuying process!”

Realizing the American Dream of Homeownership

Clarice is raising her two granddaughters and wanted a secure and stable home for them. When working with our staff, she was surprised to find out that with a little work of her own, she could purchase a new home through Neighborhood Housing Partnership and the Fuller Center programs. Now she has the security, stability and peace of mind only owning a home can offer.
