Housing

Welcome to the Folwell Neighborhood Association (FNA) Housing page. We are so glad you are here. Folwell is a neighborhood made up of predominately charming single family homes, with a few businesses on our main corridors, senior living centers, and apartments. Housing support and housing rights is important to Folwell.

Winter and Emergency Assistance Programs

Are you in need of energy/heat/bill assistance this winter? Struggling to find food or clothes? Here is our Short list of Resources to help you through.

Currently the FNA does not offer any down payment assistance or home repair loans. As the housing team looks for ways to support residents in living their healthiest life, here is a collection of a variety of housing resources through the city, county and non profits servicing the area.

(If you have positive input or negative feedback about any of these resources, please contact our Outreach Coordinator to ensure we only refer people to safe spaces.)

To learn more about the survey and Neighborhood Connectors, read about it on the blog.
