Our Areas of Impact
NPHS builds stronger communities by creating innovative housing and economic solutions that advance the well-being of people, vitality of neighborhoods, creation of jobs and sustainability of the environment. Through a wide variety of community and economic development programs, NPHS revitalizes neighborhoods and improves the lives of countless Inland Valley families by focusing on 5 Areas of Impact:
NPHS partners with local governments and financial institutions to help low and moderate income home buyers gain access to a wide array of newly renovated, affordable homes. Most of our homes are renovated to include energy-efficient features such as drought-tolerant landscaping, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, solar panels and energy-efficient doors, windows and appliances. These features reduce the long-term energy costs and provide a more affordable, healthier, and comfortable home for your family.
Improving the housing quality throughout Inland Empire neighborhoods is an integral component of NPHS’ mission and wide array of services. With a rich history in neighborhood redevelopment, NPHS has completed many successful rehabilitation and new residential infill projects in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. NPHS provides comprehensive neighborhood redevelopment programs which include real estate services for the acquisition and sale of land and property, single family housing development, residential property rehabilitation and the administration of local home improvement loan and grant programs.
NPHS’ Economic Inclusion programs works together to assist underserved communities of color to access, obtain and build assets that create pathways for achieving family self-sufficiency and economic mobility. As a Community Development Financial Institution, NPHS believes that economic inclusion – the opening of asset building opportunities for underserved social groups – is integral to the economic and housing development of our region. If underserved people are given a chance to access, obtain, and build concrete and tangible assets, such as savings or a home, they are more likely to participate in the workforce, pursue education or engage in other activities that help them achieve self-sufficiency and economic mobility. For these reasons, NPHs has developed the Economic Inclusion Program, an asset-based approach consisting of programs and services focused on the long-term economic development of individuals, families and communities.
By integrating “green” components into its housing rehabilitation and new construction projects, NPHS is helping the environment as well as saving homeowners money on utility costs. NPHS installs energy and water efficient appliances and fixtures that are EPA Energy Star/WaterSense certified in all of its construction projects.
NPHS’ programs and services are strengthening our local and regional economies. In 2015, our programs and services generated over $54 Million in direct investments into our local economy while creating 152 jobs throughout the Inland Valley. As demand grows for our social enterprise programs, and more underserved entrepreneurs and small business owners utilize our economic development services, NPHS advances the economic resiliency of our communities by supporting the creation and preservation of jobs.
