Neighborhood Housing Services of Beloit is pleased to announce its recent move to 520 W. Grand Avenue, the former home of TRICOR Insurance. “NHS was able to purchase this office building due to a very generous donation from David and Bruce Fritz from TRICOR”, said Christine Schlichting, executive director of NHS.

Neighborhood Housing Services is a member of the NeighborWorks® America national network, an affiliation of more than 4,414 communities across the nation.

In 1979 a group of committed residents of Beloit joined to form Neighborhood Housing Services. Thirty years later Neighborhood Housing Services is continuing to invest in families and neighborhoods. Programs and services that NHS provides include: education and counseling for successful home ownership; rehabilitation of substandard housing; home maintenance to ensure home preservation; foreclosure prevention counseling and education; and shelter for formerly homeless men.

Neighborhood Housing Services is grateful for the support of local businesses, individuals, and civic leaders who share the belief that together we can make a positive difference in neighborhoods.
