Housing

West End Neighborhood House has been a long-time leader in the revitalization of Wilmington’s West Side. West End offers housing services to fit the diverse needs of our community because we believe that safe, affordable housing is the key to personal financial success and to the health of our overall community. From providing housing or assistance to  homeownership counseling and affordable homes through Cornerstone West, our sister agency, West End has the housing opportunity you’re looking for.

Preparing to Buy a Home

If you’re thinking of buying a home, West End’s pre-housing counseling services (provided through a partnership with Delaware State Housing Authority and the $tand By Me program’s ‘Kiss Your Landlord Goodbye‘ initiative) help prepare potential home buyers who are not yet ready to begin formal housing counseling. By guiding them as they build/repair credit, pay down debt, develop and follow a budget and increase savings, potential home owners become ‘mortgage-ready’ and are subsequently referred to a housing counselor to begin formal housing counseling. For more information, call 302-658-4171 and ask to speak to with one of our program representatives. Or, if you’re ready to begin formal housing counseling, we also that service on-site through our partner Clarifi.

If you’re trying to save for a home or are seeking a loan to move to a safe, affordable apartment,  check out our  our Statewide Security Deposit Loan Program.
