New Hope Housing's core purpose is to provide life-stabilizing, affordable, permanent housing with support services for people who live on limited incomes.

“Through my heartache and tears,
He brought me here. I love my place;
it’s my mansion.”

Diane Farr, Brays Crossing

The Culmination of 20 Years of Deep Roots, Strong Growth and New Hope

On December 12, 2013, we celebrated the grand opening of New Hope’s Rittenhouse SRO. The development features a grove of mature oak trees and native ‘prairie’ areas, creating a unique park-like experience. Stained glass panels punctuate the entry. The creation of a sense of place through art and nature is an integral part of our award-winning approach to affordable housing.
