Why Housing

The most pressing crisis in our city

The Crisis

Affordable housing is the most pressing crisis our city faces.

At New Hope Housing, we know that safe, affordable housing is the foundation that families and individuals need to thrive. We’re facing the housing affordability crisis head on with innovative solutions that are changing the narrative for thousands of people.

The Problem

Houston has experienced some of the highest housing cost increases in the nation

with more than one-third of our citizens struggling to pay for housing and affording food, according to a recent study by "The New York Times." This crisis is no longer contained to Houston’s lowest earners. It is sweeping into middle class communities across the city, burdening families with alarming rental rates and substandard housing options. This places families and individuals at risk of homelessness. Affordable housing is central to solving this problem.
