In 1997, a group of committed citizens came together, moved by the plight of one neighborhood, and launched NeighborWorks® Columbus on its journey. This journey has moved our organization from the trenches of neighborhood revitalization to the dogged determination that everyone should have the opportunity to build family assets.
NeighborWorks® Columbus’ success lies with passionate volunteers who have taken to task the strategic planning of the organization and the resource development required to ensure success and a core belief in the criticality of its mission. Our staff of dedicated professionals works tirelessly to ensure that our goals are implemented in an effective and efficient manner.
Today in our community, NeighborWorks® Columbus has never been more relevant. The economic crisis that deepens with each passing day has put a sense of urgency in the organizations ability to target its precious resources to ensure maximum impact. Measuring success on the macro level has always been part of the organizations culture; however, in these uncertain times we will have to engage in measuring our success on the micro level as well. Market changes will have to be tracked on a daily basis; strategies will have to be fully vetted throughout the organization before implementation; every move will have to be strategic.
Our founders dreamed of an organization that would breathe life back into our historic neighborhoods, help the neediest will out of the shacks they live in, empower our families with life-long lessons in financial fitness and assist families in becoming life-long homeowners. Now, more than ever, our success is necessary for the health of our community.
