Each year, NeighborWorks Great Falls impacts hundreds of neighbors in our community. From homebuyer education graduates to CommUNITY Cleanup volunteers, NeighborWorks has created a strong network of neighbors who are dedicated to revitalizing and building strong neighborhoods in our community. Last year, we saw Great Falls take a national stage for its efforts, ranking 4th best city in the nation for first-time homebuyers by realtor.com, 10th best city in the Western U.S. to reside post-pandemic by Business Insider, and 7th most affordable metro area in the West by AdvisorSmith.
Our mission is to continue providing hard-working families with the opportunity for a safe, secure, affordable home. We know that the results from a safe and secure home are fundamental for our community to thrive. Homeownership is the number one builder of wealth, and in 2021, NeighborWorks Great Falls walked hundreds of neighbors along the homebuying journey, allowing them to successfully invest in themselves and their futures.
