NHS offers services to individuals looking to Buy
For those looking to buy a home NHS offers free Home Buyer Education classes
in English and Spanish at several locations. NHS’ homeownership consultants work with individual homebuyers to educate and prepare individuals for homeownership. Neighborhood Lending Services, our lending division, provides loans to borrowers in Chicago, Elgin, Carpentersville and some South Suburban Communities who want to purchase a home or repair or refinance their home.
For homeowners facing a hardship we offer one-on-one consultations. Our homeownership consultants work with people in danger of losing their homes by reviewing the financial situation and submitting an application for assistance to the mortgage servicer.
We also have a Redevelopment Corporation who reclaims vacant properties by buying them, fully rehabbing them using "green" building practices, and then selling them to new homeowners.
