The mission of NeighborWorks Western Pennsylvania is financial empowerment that promotes homeownership and stable communities. This goal is realized by helping individuals and families to strengthen their financial security through education programs, counseling, and affordable financing.
Founded in 1968 by the now-legendary community organizer Dorothy Richardson, NeighborWorks Western Pennsylvania was the first community-based group to respond to the lack of safe and affordable housing and has become a model for similar organizations all around the country. NeighborWorks Western Pennsylvania is now a community leader for sustainable homeownership within the region. NeighborWorks Western Pennsylvania forges critical relationships with financial institutions, government officials, and neighborhood residents to offer an array of homeownership services.
