Neighbor Works Annual Art, Wine & Food Classic FundraiserOn August 18th, Neighbor Works Annual Art, Wine & Food Classic Fundraiser was held at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria. Founded by a small group of residents who wanted to improve their distressed neighborhood, Sacramento Neighborhood Housing Services was created in 1987. Now doing business as NeighborWorks® HomeOwnership Center Sacramento Region (NeighborWorks® Sacramento), the organization has changed and grown, but the heart of its mission remains the same. Initially, Sacramento Neighborhood Housing Services served just four neighborhoods in Sacramento. Today, NeighborWorks® Sacramento serves an 11-county region from two offices, and its program offerings include a full range of services to assist potential and current homeowners. The mission is to “provide opportunities for successful homeownership and strong communities through quality education, affordable lending, supportive partnership and dedicated leadership.”
