NDF was established in September 1986 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with seed money provided through the John M. and Holley Pavy DeBlois Foundation. This organization is founded on the belief that decent affordable housing is essential to the physical and emotional health, productivity, and self-esteem of an individual.
NDF provides counseling, education, home buyer training, advocacy, and pre and post home ownership acquisition services to low and moderate-income individuals and families. The organization’s goal is to assist a minimum of 100 individuals per year in achieving home ownership.
NDF works through public and private partnerships that include community groups, businesses, industry, faith based organizations, corporations, other non-profits, and City, State, and Federal governments.
