Housing for New Hope
Housing for New Hope (HNH) is an innovative leader in creating new solutions and collaborations to prevent and end homelessness by providing increased access to healthcare, integrated services, and housing. Over the past 22 years, HNH has grown from a single men’s transitional house to a multifaceted homelessness and housing development organization.
Housing for New Hope operates a comprehensive street outreach and engagement program, we own and/or operate 90 units of affordable housing, we began a pilot program for a respite collaborative solution for the homeless being discharged from hospitals without a place to recover in 2014, and we operate the largest Rapid Rehousing program in Durham.
Last year, we worked with over 2,300 people in 1,000 households. This includes providing 622 homes with emergency financial assistance, engaging 111 chronically homeless with support services, moving 84% of our transitional housing guests to permanent housing, and rapidly rehousing 86 households (150 adults & 192 children).
Our evidence-based Rapid Rehousing program is designed to help individuals and families quickly exit homelessness and return to permanent housing. The resources and services provided are typically tailored to the unique needs of the household. The core components of Rapid Rehousing are housing identification, rent and move-in financial assistance, and holistic case management and services. Since it’s inception, Rapid Rehousing has moved 369 people home, 214 of which were children.
Housing for New Hope joined the NC Housing Coalition because we are both person-centered organizations. We believe that everyone deserves a safe, quality, and affordable home. We both understand that homelessness impacts us all, whether or not we experience it ourselves, and it is a tragedy that our children are at risk for life long impediments associated with their families’ inability to find and maintain suitable housing.
