Give Miami Day 2019

A Message from the CEO

Last Friday, we held our first Grateful Gathering to say thank you to the funders who support us and to our clients who chose Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida to guide them on their journey to affordable homeownership and financial well-being.  After nearly 15 years of working in affordable housing, I estimate that working with others dedicated to advancing homeownership, we have guided nearly 3000 families into their own homes.

I have never tired of listening to the stories and learning how everyday working people triumphed over so many odds to become homeowners or repair their finances.

Homeownership remains central to our sense of living the American Dream.  Having access to affordable housing whether one rents or owns is not only about meeting our basic need for shelter but also for achieving stability, security, health, community and belonging.

As NHSSF works with families to navigate through one of the most expensive housing markets in the country, we will need your help to deliver our services.  Our goal is to co-create with our families vibrant, diverse, and revitalized communities.  On this very special day of giving sponsored by the Miami Foundation, please support the mission and vision of Neighborhood Housing Services of South Florida.

Thank you for your support.

Kimberly T. Henderson
