KNHS exists to close the home ownership gap in Kalamazoo.
Kalamazoo Neighborhood Housing Services, Inc. (KNHS) was created in 1981 and has been shaped by residents, lenders, local leaders, and government representatives of the core neighborhoods in the City of Kalamazoo. Established as a 501(c)(3) community development company, KNHS is a chartered member of NeighborWorks® America, a congressionally chartered national network of community-based organizations.
We are a non-profit offering a variety of specialized loan products and free financial education services to anyone in the county. Whether you’re a homeowner looking to repair your credit, or a renter trying to save for your first home, KNHS can help. We also have a dedicated Foreclosure Counseling service, if you are facing a home foreclosure.
The mission of KNHS is to revitalize neighborhoods and foster home ownership in Kalamazoo County. We do this by providing comprehensive programs and education tailored to low and moderate income home buyers and homeowners.
Through education, counseling, real estate development projects, alternative financial products, and housing rehabilitation assistance, KNHS is working to create vibrant, diverse neighborhoods in Kalamazoo where people want to live, work, and invest.
