Fix Your Credit
Escape debt and build a budget with one-on-one credit counseling. Sometimes, it takes someone else to show you the way forward.
Prepare for Homeownership
Ready to buy? Homebuyer education gets you the knowledge you’ll need to purchase—and keep—your home.
Whether it’s a home, college, or some other savings goal, The Neighbor Project may be able to help!
Your house may be your greatest asset. The foreclosure prevention program shows you ways to keep it you may not have known about.
The Neighbor Project’s work is built on three core principles:
Neighbors Build Neighborhoods
The people who could make the biggest difference in Aurora aren’t outsiders; they’re our neighbors. Research shows that ordinary working people have the greatest power to transform a city.
Assets Build Financial Freedom
For a typical working family, the difference between financial freedom and financial vulnerability isn’t lack of income—it’s lack of assets. Work should pay, but cycles of debt and disadvantage keep assets like savings or a home just out of reach for many.
We're Here to Help Each Other
Human beings were made to love their neighbors. When I set you free, I set myself free too. We need each other. And when we embrace that, we can actually change the world.
