Alabama Collaborative celebrates National Neighbor Works Week

Alabama Collaborative kicked off Neighbor Works Week to highlight issues associated with affordable housing.

Neighbor Works responds to the problem of foreclosure by rehabilitating property and putting it back on the market. Neighbor Works Week is celebrated through June 9th. During that time, originations across the country mobilize business and government leaders to bring about change and awareness in neighborhoods.

Community action partnership says the most common barriers to affordable housing are credit scores, obsolete housing, energy inefficiency, education, foreclosures , and disaster damage.
