Donations allow NeighborWorks Great Falls to help families attain affordable, quality housing and help to revitalize our neighborhoods. Once settled in a decent affordable home or apartment, a family has better health outcomes, is more stable and their children do better in school. The long-term value of our work has been well-documented and extends far beyond housing - NeighborWorks' work grows the local economy and Neighborhood stability. NeighborWorks has made a huge impact on Great Falls since 1980 and we hope to continue that impact for may more years with your support.
An endowment creates an income stream for the future that assures good work can continue, regardless of the variations of Federal and foundation funding. Our endowment goal is $2.5 million which will allow NeighborWorks Great Falls to provide homes and mortgages, education and planning to create successful homeowners for years to come, despite rapidly shrinking federal funds.
