NHPF remains very concerned regarding the overall health and well-being of our 25,000 residents during the Covid-19 crisis. We have been actively working with our third-party management companies in taking steps such as increased cleaning of common areas, limiting resident contact except for emergency situations and, through our resident services program subsidiary Operation Pathways, providing resources for financial assistance, food, medicine, transportation, and needed supplies. In addition, we have placed a moratorium on all evictions for non-payment of rent for the duration of this crisis and are actively engaging our residents who have been financially impacted to discuss payment plans. We fully appreciate the social and emotional tolls the length of this crisis have taken on our residents and we will follow all local and state government directives regarding the reopening of our sites and community centers. The safety and well-being of our residents remains our highest priority.

The 4th Annual NHP Foundation Symposium, “Growing Up & Out of Poverty: Why Housing Matters,” examines the intersection between affordable housing, academic success, and opportunities for social mobility.

Proceeds of the event will benefit NHPF’s resident services subsidiary Operation Pathways. NHPF preserves and creates sustainable, affordable multifamily housing, and scattered-site communities where residents can access Operation Pathways’ onsite health and wellness, education, and financial stability programming via its unique Family-Centered Coaching principles. Residents of housing who harness the powers of these principles are a true demonstration that where, and how, you live matter.

We are grateful to our sponsors and attendees. In this most difficult of years, you have chosen to embrace NHPF’s mission of providing pathways that residents can follow up and out of poverty. We hope you will join us as we continue to foster strong relationships essential to the success of our valuable work.
