REIMAGINING THE ADMINISTRATION OF HOUSING, ECONOMIC & COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

Our Story

We saw the urgent need for software that could empower public sector teams to do their best work and make the most impact with their program dollars. So we set out to build it.

Since 2016, our cloud-based software has been revolutionizing Housing, Economic, and Community Development program administration.  Serving 350+ clients (we call them Neighbors) nationwide, we deliver efficiency, compliance, and data-driven insights that help maximize community impact. With one refreshingly easy, integrated platform we automate and simplify the enrollment, administration, and reporting of 20+ housing, economic, and community development programs.

Our MISSION

We are purpose-driven people and dedicated to serving something bigger than ourselves.  Helping Communities Help People is at the heart of all we do.  It's how we designed our software and deliver unmatched Neighbor experiences.

We're on a mission to make a difference and believe community development is one of the most powerful and sustainable ways to create social and economic good.  Neighborly Software’s platform helps communities make a real difference in the lives of low-income families and vulnerable populations.

“Neighborly Software’s brand promise is “Helping Communities, Help People.” It embodies who we are, what we believe, and what we stand for.”
