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.

RESIDENT VOICES

Kenicha

Kenicha is a single mother living with her daughter Mahila. After Mahila was born, Kenicha went back to work full-time and she began taking classes to earn her LPN. Her long-term career goal was to become a registered nurse, and she was accepted into an RN program to begin her studies.

“Without rental assistance, I would not be able to continue my education. I would have to work three jobs just to keep a roof over our heads and food on the table. I would never get to see my daughter. Having the onsite resources and support made it possible for me to work, go to school, and take care of my daughter. My next goal is to buy a house, which I already started saving for.”
