  • Our History

    Trellis (originally started as Neighborhood Housing Services of Phoenix) was formed in 1975 with help from the City of Phoenix and NeighborWorks America. NeighborWorks America is a national nonprofit organization, federally funded by an appropriations from Congress that provides financial support, technical assistance and training for community-based revitalization efforts in all 50 states.

  • Our Future

    Access to home ownership for all of us. Individuals and families become stable and more economically secure; neighborhoods become vital, active communities; and cities gain jobs and tax revenues. It’s an investment with positive returns for everyone.
