Mutual Self-Help Housing

Someday is a word you say too often...

You work hard, pay your bills on time, but the dream of home ownership seems out of reach. We can help.

Northwest Housing Development is a nonprofit organization that helps families and individuals with modest incomes and good credit to build their own homes.
