“The City of Houston is a major contributor and we have invested more than $20MM in projects for New Hope Housing. There is a reason we do that – when you find a group who knows how to do it, knows how to do it right, does it right consistently, there are never questions, there are never concerns, it is a matter of come in, show us what you want to do, and we will see what our capacity is and let’s see if we can work together.”

Mayor Annise Parker

“This is what community partnership is all about. It’s about commitment and dedication and making sure those less fortunate have a home. So when they come to a place like New Hope Housing, they can feel like they are at home.”

Council Member Wanda Adams


Our Properties

New Hope’s current properties are home to adults who live alone on limited incomes. Each person leases an efficiency apartment—an idealized college dorm room—in a property with lovely community spaces. This type of housing is often termed single room occupancy (SRO).

Our multi-family rental properties are well-run efficiency apartment homes, each with a private tiled bath, microwave, and refrigerator. Residents have access to the attractive communal living areas, including kitchens, coin-operated washers/dryers, libraries, television/dining lounges, and beautiful outdoor spaces. Most properties feature a business center. All properties provide fully monitored, 24/7 front desk coverage to enhance the health and safety of residents.


As our third LEED certified property, Rittenhouse has 160 units of SRO housing and is located off I-45 North at the corner of Stuebner Airline and Rittenhouse Road. Opened 2013.
