Give Miami Day
What is Give Miami Day?
One of South Florida's biggest 24-hour annual giving events, Give Miami Day, is an online campaign where all locals can be philanthropists.
On Thursday, November 16, 2023, we invite everyone to explore the online profiles of hundreds of Miami-Dade community organizations that continuously provide the supplies, services, and support our residents need. We encourage you to support NHSSF with a charitable donation. While we all count on Greater Miami's organizations to serve our region day after day, this time, we are counting on you.
Since 2012, Give Miami Day has raised more than $100 million for 1,000+ community organizations.
Why Support NHSSF?
On Give Miami Day, Miami comes together to support the community’s most important causes, through donations big and small, making a transformational difference. Neighborhood Housing Services counts on your support to help us continue to offer our important services to the South Florida community.
Please consider making a donation to NHSSF on Give Miami Day, November 16. Your contribution goes a long way and is important to us!
These are some of the important services and initiatives that your donation will help fund:
At the Center for Homeownership Education and Financial Wellbeing, NHSSF combines a proven educational system with personalized one-on-one counseling and financial coaching to bring the dream of homeownership closer to reality. We offer a variety of classes, workshops and counseling services in English, Spanish and Creole.
NHSSF offers a comprehensive set of lending options included as an integral part of our one-stop-shop. As a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), we specialize in providing financial products and services to people and communities underserved by traditional financial institutions, as well as traditional mortgage products.
In this past year, we have deepened our commitment to Liberty City. We are part of a multi-organization collaboration as part of our Heirs Project which helps Liberty City homeowners with tangled title issues that prevent the peaceful transition of property once the owner passes on. We are also providing homebuyer training in Liberty City to promote homeownership. As a community development organization, we want to increase our commitment and investment. We can’t do that without your help, ideas, and input.
As part of our commitment to preserve the housing stock in Miami-Dade County and promote sustainable homeownership across South Florida communities, we believe that energy efficient improvements help create a healthier home environment, while reducing home energy costs. Through funding provided by the Miami-Dade County Community Action and Human Services Department (CAHSD), NHSSF has begun installing weatherization measures in at least 180 homes within 12 months. These energy efficiency measures, such as air sealing, insulation, water heater and HVAC system replacement will help low- to moderate-income residents save money on utility bills, foster a healthier home, and help families to participate in being good stewards of our environment.
One of our goals is to provide innovative solutions to communities facing an affordable housing crisis and residential and business displacement due to climate change, natural disasters, gentrification, and unexpected economic hardships. To this end, we are committed to community revitalization and beautification. In commemoration of our 45th anniversary we set a goal to paint (exterior) and landscape up to 45 homes throughout South Florida. We are working with The Home Depot stores in various neighborhoods.
Beginning back in April, we were proud to partner with Miami-Dade County Community Action and Human Services Department (CAHSD) to administer the Mortgage Relief Program (MRP) which provided financial assistance to Miami-Dade County homeowners who were experiencing hardship and struggling to pay their mortgage and/or utility bills.
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:
- Residents who are educated consumers in their housing choices.
- Residents who have access to appropriate financial products for buying and maintaining their homes.
- Housing that is environmentally safe, decent, and financially affordable for homeowners and renters.
- Stakeholder- and resident-driven revitalized neighborhoods where residents, businesses, and local governments choose to invest, time money, and energy.
