Building Great Neighborhoods
NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire has an active and highly dedicated Neighborhood Development Department. Our neighborhood development activities are designed to energize the Southern New Hampshire real estate markets. Crucial to these activities is an aggressive acquisition and redevelopment strategy. This helps bring affordable rental and home ownership opportunities to families, while eliminating properties that are rundown or neglected. More importantly, newer renovated homes help grow neighborhoods and residential pride and that is the first step toward community redevelopment.
The principal goals of NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire’s Neighborhood Development efforts include the elimination of blight; the development of high quality, affordable rental units; the promotion and development of affordable home ownership opportunities and the empowerment of neighborhood residents to improve the quality of life in the neighborhoods and towns where they live. During the past 20 years NeighborWorks® Southern New Hampshire has created or acquired over 400 units of affordable housing. Many of these units were vacant and/or abandoned sites with little hope of ever providing safe homes for the many families in need of affordable, safe places to live.
All of our affordable rental properties are maintained by Stewart Property Management Company, a property management company located in Bedford, New Hampshire. Managing over 110 properties in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, Stewart Property Management has a strong track record of quality rental management practices. In addition to maintaining the physical landscape of our properties, Stewart Property Management coordinates the rental of all of our units.
