Since 1989, NHPF has served low and moderate income Americans from coast to coast.
Today, our portfolio includes 57 properties providing 9,664 affordable housing units in 15 states and the District of Columbia. Throughout all these communities, we are committed to serving families with children, adults, and seniors living in NHPF properties.
NHPF is committed to so much more than the “bricks and mortar” of affordable housing. The work we do doesn’t just put roofs over people’s heads—it builds communities.
Based on NHPF-commissioned research and other sources, we have also become acutely aware of new populations who are rapidly changing the current face of affordable housing. Baby Boomers, often underprepared for retirement, are leaving the workforce in numbers as high as 10,000 per day and find themselves in need of affordable housing, often for the first time in their lives. They are joined by many Millennials, stymied by college debt and fewer job opportunities. They too may enter the affordable housing market for the first time.
The needs of these renters will vary vastly from those of the current population. It is up to housing providers like NHPF to assess and provide amenities and necessities that will meet these needs. It is also up to us to keep looking at future populations and remain a flexible, adaptable organization ready to meet the challenges of a changing world.
NHPF has provided nationally recognized resident services for almost three decades. In 2016, the strategic decision was made to make the NHPF resident services division—Operation Pathways—its own 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. This restructuring allows Operation Pathways—now an NHPF subsidiary—to expand its impact and serve more affordable housing communities across the country. Whether after-school opportunities for our youngest residents, wellness programs to encourage healthy families, or financial literacy services for adults and seniors, Operation Pathways turns housing into homes.
