     "I am excited about the opportunity to work with NHS to help restore
 hope and local investment in Chicago's neighborhoods," said Colip.  "The
 NHS mission closely aligns with Household's commitment to ensuring that
 middle-market America has fair access to the education and financial support
 to achieve home ownership."

 executing the initiatives for the newly created Homeownership Preservation

 1995, where he was actively involved in the Boulevards Initiative.  This
 project generated community support from other local companies to conduct
 major revitalization on the boulevards in the area surrounding Chicago's King
 Drive.
     Since the onset of Household's relationship with NHS in 1990, these
 organizations have had a dramatic impact on local neighborhoods through
 various programs including the Boulevards Initiative and the formation of the
 Homeownership Preservation Initiative.  In addition, Household has provided
 support in helping to develop and offer programs for mortgage aid in securing
 homes, foreclosure prevention, down payment assistance and financial
 counseling.  The company has also served as a sponsor for the NHS
 Neighborworks Day, an annual event designated for cleaning and revitalizing a
 chosen Chicago community.  In the past, specific activities have included
 developing a children's park in the designated neighborhood, as well as
 housing rehab projects.
