In a region struggling with the most persistent affordable housing crisis in the nation, New Neighborhoods’ mission is to create sustainable communities by developing, redeveloping, and preserving quality housing that strengthens low- and moderate-income families, allows seniors to age with dignity, provides stability for the formerly homeless, and affords all residents opportunities to realize their dreams.
During Stamford’s transformational downtown urban renewal in 1967, the Council of Churches and Synagogues sponsored the creation of New Neighborhoods, Inc. as an independent, secular nonprofit 501c(3). New Neighborhoods, Inc. has and continues to develop, preserve and manage low, moderate and middle income ownership and rental housing, to keep Stamford a viable place to live, work and do business. After 50 years working within Stamford, New Neighborhoods has expanded its focus and impact to include all of Connecticut with an emphasis on Fairfield County.
New Neighborhoods, Inc. believes safe, decent housing is the foundation on which individuals can begin to build better lives for themselves and their families. And by collaborating with complementary organizations, New Neighborhoods is a catalyst for empowering residents and homeowners to move up the economic ladder and participate more fully in the community.
As the pioneer of low and moderate income housing in Fairfield County, New Neighborhoods has developed more types of housing than any other non-profit in Connecticut: co-ops, condominiums, family rentals, senior citizen apartments, high-rise, low-rise, rehabilitations, preservation, conversions, new construction and modular. We look forward to what the future holds as New Neighborhoods continues to build.
