NHSSF has over 40 years of serving South Florida as a leader in affordable housing solutions. Headquartered in Miami, NHSSF is a minority-lead and minority-serving CDFI, affordable housing developer, and community organization working to revitalize low-to-moderate income (LMI) communities. NHSSF exists to champion the self-empowerment of South Florida residents through our best-in-class programs and services such as; Homeownership Counseling, Financial Education, and innovative lending products. In addition to these core services, NHSSF works in close partnership with community members, government agencies, and financial service organizations to pilot and implement innovative approaches to enhance the resiliency and stability of historically marginalized communities.
We are a charter member of the NeighborWorks® Network, a certified Homeownership Center, a HUD approved counseling agency, have adopted the National Industry Standards for Homeownership Education and Counseling, a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), and a Community Housing Development Organization in City of Miami. We provide services in English, Spanish and Creole.
NHSSF collaborates with residents and other stakeholders to stabilize neighborhoods and develop sustainable, affordable housing. Organization-wide, we are committed to the following outcomes:
1) Residents who are educated consumers in their housing choices.
2) Residents who have access to appropriate financial products for buying and maintaining their homes.
3) Housing that is environmentally safe, decent, and financially affordable for homeowners and renters.
4) Stakeholder- and resident-driven revitalized neighborhoods where residents, businesses, and local governments choose to invest, time money, and energy.
