Rising from the Ashes

Congratulations to our neighbor, Denise Harris, on the purchase of her new home! Denise swung by to thank Deputy Director of Lending, Chris Flynn, for helping her get back on her feet after a fire destroyed her home. With his guidance, she was able to turn this tragic situation around and purchase a new home. Helping folks along their homeownership journey is exactly why we’re here, and we’re so happy for you, Denise!

Three neighborhood housing services rebrand and unify

NeighborWorks Community Partners to strengthen services & neighborhoods across WNY — Three local nonprofit organizations have changed their names. West Side Neighborhood Housing Services, Black Rock-Riverside Housing Services and Niagara Falls Neighborhood Housing Services are now part of a Western New York collective called NeighborWorks Community Partners. The goal is to expand services across the state.

Buffalo offices are located at 1943 Niagara St., and 359 Connecticut St. The Niagara Falls office is at 479 16th St.

NeighborWorks Community Partners Buffalo and NeighborWorks Community Partners Niagara Falls will act as catalysts for building and strengthening communities by guiding individuals and families with modest budgets along the homeownership journey. A new focus includes outreach to young professionals, who are often fraught with student loan debt that can affect their mortgage readiness, as the organization looks closely at similar community needs to find new ways to expand services.

The expertly trained staff of NeighborWorks Community Partners Buffalo and NeighborWorks Community Partners Niagara Falls partners with banks and other community supporters to assist neighbors with homebuyer education, financial fitness, low-interest lending, home repair and rehab, lead testing, and energy-efficiency assessments.

“This alignment of values and services is a testament to the dedication we have for serving the Greater Buffalo community,” NeighborWorks Community Partners CEO Jerome Nagy said. “We are honored to be stewards of NeighborWorks Community Partners as we enter into a new era. Our brand is committed to being positive, inclusive and collaborative. Neighborhoods work when neighbors work together. We want to work with you, our neighbors, to create a better Western New York.”
