NEW Community Investments

Connecting people with their own sense of power and economic mobility

Founded in 1985 as the first Latina-operated nonprofit community economic development organization, New Economics for Women’s (NEW’s) vision is to create and build wealth opportunities for the Latina families and children we serve, sparking economic mobility as a pathway to an inspired and stable life.  

We carry out that mission through housing, education, financial planning and literacy, and now the support and creation of small business. We not only have designed and provide over 2,000 units of quality affordable housing in 13 complexes but have built two award-winning communities. This unique model, like no other in the United States, greatly increases the chance of upward mobility for families by putting multiple services under one roof.

We also hold deep expertise and success in homelessness prevention, being awarded programs to apply our knowledge and success in this arena. We have designed and have now executed a pilot program that has saved 70 out of 80 families from homelessness, are re-launching a special program in homelessness prevention, and actively support eviction prevention.
