NHPF Builds


Beginning in 1995 with the acquisition of Oakbrook Apartments, The NHP Foundation (NHPF) has long had a presence in the greater Houston area, which it is now seeking to rapidly expand as the booming Houston economy demands more safe, affordable housing for its residents. NHPF, a leading provider of affordable housing in 16 states and the District of Columbia, acquired its second and third properties in the City in 2013 and 2014. Now, NHPF has embarked on a bevy of new construction projects for the neediest citizens of Space City. The acquisition of Pepper Tree Manor and Cleme Manor Apartments in 2013 and 2014 were made possible via the outstanding relationships we have cultivated with the City of Houston and Mayor Sylvester Turner as well as Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, whose district includes the 5th Ward where Cleme Manor is located. NHPF Builds Texas. In partnership with the City of Houston, NHPF completed a substantial redevelopment of Cleme Manor, providing ongoing management and security enhancements that have resulted in a 27% decrease in crime in the area. NHPF’s adherence to ESG investment principles has helped Cleme Manor Apartments become an integral part of the revitalization of the community. We see the path up and out of poverty beginning with multifamily housing enriched with services provided by our subsidiary Operation Pathways—services that families and seniors draw on to expand opportunities for education, financial growth, health and well-being. Working with the Harris County Housing Authority and the City of Houston Housing and Community Development Department, NHPF has completed three new construction projects which include a mix of valuable senior living, units of permanent supportive housing, and multifamily units. Those projects, Rasmus-Temenos Apartments, The Citadel Apartments, and (completed July 2024) RoseMary’s Place Apartments, were constructed in partnership with local non-profits and stakeholders, ensuring that local communities are integrally involved in the development process from day one. For example, NHPF partnered with Temenos Community Development Corporation on the Rasmus-Temenos Apartments complex. Temenos’ mission is to provide affordable housing opportunities, supportive services, and employment resources to low- to extremely low income persons in the Houston area on their journey to self-sufficiency. Preserving and expanding access to affordable housing in the Houston metro area is just one way that NHPF strives to build and preserve more equitable, resilient communities that people can afford.
