Revitalizing neighborhoods and
Assisting families with homeownership
Welcome to NeighborWorks® of Pueblo
NeighborWorks is a private nonprofit that assists families with homeownership. Our services include:
- first time homebuyer education
NeighborWorks® of Pueblo also rehabilitates houses that have become stale on the market, or even abandoned properties, so that a low-income family might still be able to afford a quality home. Our counselors can help you obtain a rehabilitation grant or loan to quickly repair health and safety concerns right away but paying small manageable amounts month to month.
Part of revitalizing Pueblo's older neighborhoods includes community service projects. Our signature event, Operation Paintbrush, now in its 30th year, has painted 475 homes for the elderly and disabled citizens of Pueblo. Through this program thousands of volunteers have come together to help their fellow Puebloans. We also coordinate alley clean-ups and beautification projects like landscaping along streets and planting trees at local schools and parks. We have designed a house to fit on a 25' wide lot to accommodate tight boundaries that exist in older neighborhoods. NWP has built energy efficient homes that include solar power, CFL lighting, water conserving fixtures, and energy efficient appliances.
By creating more homeowners in a neighborhood, NWP is creating stakeholders in the Pueblo community.Take a tour of our website and learn more about NeighborWorks® of Pueblo!
