What is building lives?
For NeighborWorks Umpqua, building lives is multi-faceted. By helping people attain their dreams, like building or buying their own home, or starting a business, or obtaining affordable housing, we build lives.
Economic stability and a quality home life is important to the community as a whole.
But there is more - building or buying a home is a process. Having a successful business is not a matter of guesswork. If not done correctly, such endeavors can fail, so we offer educational opportunities so people can not only have a home or a business, but keep it and improve it.
Lives, young and old, are built and enriched because we work with people with dreams and goals, and help make them a reality.
