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 information about 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

Shalimar

Recently, Pam, the resident services coordinator, saw Shalimar in the lobby of the building. Shalimar was a summer intern from 2015, and Pam hadn’t seen her in several months. Shalimar reported that she had been very busy working her full-time job, while attending college. She’s currently in a certificate program to become an interpreter, and plans to continue her education towards a bachelor’s degree in business management.

Shalimar thanked Pam for introducing her to Operation Pathways and helping her manage her income, especially teaching her the importance of prioritizing her expenses. She is working hard every day, continuing her education, managing her expenses, modeling good fiscal behaviors to her family, mentoring her sister, and working towards her goals.

Where Shalimar lives matters.
