HomeStart is the result of a merger between two non-profit organizations located in neighboring cities in northwest Illinois: Neighborhood Housing Services of Freeport, and the Rockford Area Affordable Housing Coalition. After more than a year of exploring what they could do better together than they could do separately, it was determined that the synergistic results would be worth the effort involved in merging, and HomeStart was born January 1, 2013. Both organizations had sound accomplishments in the arenas of affordable housing, foreclosure prevention, and neighborhood improvement, prior to their alliance, but they have much greater potential going forward. The passion, commitment and integrity of all those involved in the formation of HomeStart is very impressive!
