ACQUISITIONS & REDEDICATIONS
CLEME MANOR HOUSTON, TEXAS The theme of the rededication ceremony held on December 1 was “Christmas has come early for the Residents of Cleme Manor.” The dignitaries and officials who spoke emphasized that the turnaround in Cleme Manor’s reputation and operations is a cornerstone in the overall gentrification of Houston’s Fifth Ward. NHPF’s acquisition and rehabilitation of Cleme Manor would not have been possible without the partnership of the City of Houston Housing and Community Development Department led by Neal Rackleff, Director and the Greater Fifth Ward Stakeholder Partnership. Houston City Councilman Jerry Davis shared with the guests that the City’s investment in Cleme Manor and the Fifth Ward has led to a welcomed reversal of the earlier decision to close Henderson Elementary, the area’s only public school.
