The mission of Homewise is to help working New Mexicans become successful homeowners in order to achieve financial security, strengthen families and increase the economic and social vitality of our communities.
Homewise knows a home of your own is more than the wood, tile and stucco that go into it. It’s a place to raise a family, be a part of a community, and become financially secure through homeownership. Buying a home can be one of the most rewarding experiences in your lifetime. By providing opportunities for successful homeownership through home purchase, home repair and education, Homewise helps New Mexican families realize their dreams of owning a home while becoming financially secure.
Homewise was founded as Neighborhood Housing Services of Santa Fe in 1986. Since its founding, Homewise has helped • over 2,000 people purchase homes • over 1,450 people keep their homes by providing financial and technical assistance for home repair • trained and counseled more than 7,000 people toward successful homeownership • built over 400 affordable, energy-efficient homes
