Blue Clover donates its services to the Neighborhood Housing Services San Antonio
NHS of San Antonio is a non-profit builder and lender for affordable housing in San Antonio and Bexar County. NHS helps families get into homes by collaborating with other private and non-profit organizations to improve mortgage industry products and services for community initiatives. Programs and services include individualized credit counseling, homebuyer education and post purchase home maintenance workshops, low-interest loans, down payment assistance, affordable new construction homes and owner-occupied rehabilitation.
Blue Clover hopes to inform the public about NHS and its mission of “building successful families and communities through housing opportunities” throughout all of San Antonio, but especially its Mira Vista and Tierra Del Sol locations. Blue Clover mixes electronic branding through award-winning websites, e-commerce, SEO and content manageable systems with traditional tools including name and logo development, TV, radio, multicultural, public relations, direct mail, and special event planning.
“Partnering with NHS is bigger than a traditional client,” said José B. Sena, president, CEO and founding partner, Blue Clover. “It's partnering with San Antonio, our community and those whom we can help fulfill what often seems a far-fetched dream.”
