NeighborWorks® America, local NeighborWorks organizations and Neighborhood Housing Services of America make up the NeighborWorks system, which has successfully built healthy communities since 1978. Together, with national and local partners, NeighborWorks creates new opportunities for residents while improving communities.
NeighborWorks America offers a diverse, stimulating, challenging and results-oriented environment in which to work.
Its 260 staff members are dedicated to the corporation's mission of reversing decline in America's neighborhoods, strengthening communities, building sustainable partnerships and increasing the supply of safe, affordable housing. We do this by working with the more than 230 NeighborWorks organizations comprising our network of local nonprofits.
Like the local NeighborWorks organizations we serve, we place a high value on teamwork, ingenuity, collaboration, mutual respect, and personal and professional development.
The corporation's structure contributes to its staffs ability to work efficiently and cooperatively. Its field operations function is located in nine district offices, each with an assigned geographical area. Our internal management consultants have a deep and intimate knowledge of the local NeighborWorks organizations served by their offices. In addition, they cross these geographical boundaries by working with staff members from other corporate divisions in practice groups focused on a specific area (e.g., multifamily housing or resource development).
Through the corporation's administrative offices in Washington, D.C., staff is able to educate members of Congress and others about the importance and success of its work. The headquarters office is the home base for the executive services, finance, training, human resources, information technology, development and communications, and other key, corporate functions.
The benefits of working in an ever-changing atmosphere with other creative, talented professionals have attracted, and retained, our high-quality staff. A diverse workforce that places a premium on respect and cooperation offers a valuable environment for many in the community development field.
