Affordable Homes for Sale


Annually, NeighborWorks Great Falls offers approximately ten homes for sale through Catalyst Commercial Real Estate. Most of the homes are newly constructed in the older parts of the city. Some are major renovations of older homes. Some homes are handicapped accessible.

Great Falls Area High School House Program

“I love what the high school house does for the kids, the community and the neighborhood. It keeps kids in school for graduation and puts them on a path to a good-paying job.”  ~Instructor, high school building program
Construction trades students from C.M. Russell High School and Great Falls High School build Energy Star efficient homes that are sold to income qualified first-time homebuyers through NeighborWorks.

The partnership between NeighborWorks and the school district has been ongoing for more than 16 years and involves a lot of cooperation between the district, NeighborWorks, the city of Great Falls and business partners such as Falls Construction, which provides the excavation for all the high school houses at no charge.

Not only does NeighborWorks Great Falls construct new homes, but it also renovates houses that are sold through Catalyst Commercial Real Estate.

Renovations are carried out by experienced contractors and NWGF crews. Work depends on what is necessary to bring the home up to modern housing standards and may include new foundations, electrical, plumbing and heating system upgrades and other modernization work.

NWGF renovations offer the best of both worlds: an older home with historic character, but with updated features.
