National Housing Resource Center (NHRC)
The National Housing Resource Center (NHRC) gives the following descriptive information:
The National Housing Resource Center (NHRC) is an advocate for the nonprofit housing counseling community, as well as for housing consumers, for communities of color, for the elderly, and for underserved populations.
Housing counselors are on the front lines of the American housing crisis, facing the flood of foreclosures, the difficulties home buyers experience in qualifying for affordable mortgage credit, the housing challenges facing communities of color, the needs of ex-homeowners entering the rental market, and the many scam artists working the housing field.
NHRC is mobilizing housing counseling agencies, networks, and Intermediaries into one united voice. There is a need to tap into counselors’ experience, elevate their issues and voices, and unite them into a national advocacy program. The nonprofit housing counseling industry is an important part of the housing market and, when properly mobilized, can help address the deep inequalities in mortgage, foreclosure, and rental situations.
The National Housing Resource Center is dedicated to organizing nonprofit housing counseling agencies into a unified voice to advocate for the housing counseling industry and on behalf of housing consumers.
The National Housing Resource Center promotes the long term interests of the housing counseling industry and the people served by the housing counseling agencies.
The Center is created to accomplish things together that we are not able to do separately.
The Center advances public policies, programs, and educational materials which will strengthen the housing counseling industry and benefit housing consumers, especially communities of color, the elderly, low and moderate income people, and underserved populations.
