Your partner in homeownership
Topic: Home and Real Estate
Homewise, a private non-profit organization, was founded in 1986 as Neighborhood Housing Services of Santa Fe. During its first six years, NHS-Santa Fe was a small nonprofit engaged in home improvement and rehabilitation of the city's poorer west side. In 1992, Mike Loftin became Executive Director and as he canvassed the organization's existing clients, he discovered the homeowners were complaining that their grown children could not afford to buy a home in Santa Fe.
Over the next decade, Loftin and the staff of NHS-Santa Fe, now called Homewise, grew into a full-service agency promoting affordable homeownership through financial counseling and educational classes designed to help Santa Fe's moderate income residents become home owners.
