We Are Committed To You

NeighborWorks Lincoln was founded to combat economic inequities in our neighborhoods and build healthy communities. We strive to embrace diversity and we lean on our core value of inclusion.

We recognize the painful injustice of the recent murder of George Floyd and the ongoing inequity towards our Black friends and neighbors. We stand with our neighbors and recognize that Black Lives Matter. Our community is hurting – and we hurt alongside of it, with you. Together, we commit to dismantling historically and systematically ingrained racial oppression and the institutions that perpetuate these inequities.

NeighborWorks Lincoln reaffirms our commitment to healthy neighborhoods and communities, and supporting first time homeownership. We are also committed to working with our community partners to address racial injustice in our city, state and country’s institutions.

Opening Doors in Our Community

NeighborWorks Lincoln is a non-profit organization dedicated to community revitalization through an active partnership of resident leaders, private businesses and public officials. We open doors for people to achieve their dreams of home ownership and for others who desire a safe and attractive neighborhood.
