Purpose & History

Helping to change the narrative

Our mission is to provide life-stabilizing, affordable, permanent housing with support services for people who live on very limited incomes.

New Hope’s vision for the future is so much broader than just housing.

From creating access to educational opportunities to partnering with leading organizations to ensure residents have the health care and social services they need– we’re helping to change the narrative for generations to come.

Our History

In 1993, the plight of the homeless and near homeless landed on the doorstep of Christ Church Cathedral-Episcopal.

As the crisis peaked, the parishioners challenged the local community to do something about it and began a fundraising campaign to invest in community solutions. After an incredible response, $1.25M was given to create New Hope Housing to build the first 40 units of single room occupancy (SRO) rental housing in Houston.

Initially, New Hope Housing was focused on providing safe, affordable housing for very low-income individuals, but over the years, the scope expanded to serve homeless and at-risk families. In 2018, we opened Reed, the first family supportive housing community located in central Southwest Houston. Fast forward 30 years, and we’re proud to offer housing at an affordable rental rate to Houstonians in nine locations across the city.
