About NeighborWorks Columbus

Founded in 1999, NeighborWorks® Columbus is a HUD-certified housing counseling agency, a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), and the City of Columbus’ Community Housing Development Organization (CHDO).

One of the ways that NeighborWorks® Columbus seeks to fulfill its mission is through the promotion of homeownership. NeighborWorks® Columbus has positioned itself as the chief advocate of the idea that the quality of life in a community begins with fit and affordable housing as its foundation. Programs that produce affordable housing and encourage home ownership are our cornerstones. One of the most important aspects of the work is delivery of homebuyer education, financial fitness classes and counseling services that produce qualified, mortgage-ready homebuyers, lifelong homeowners and savvy consumers. Equally important is the ability of our housing counseling staff to educate and advocate for clients through the financing options that help them avoid predatory lending and lead to affordability, economic stability, and the building of appreciating assets.
