2018 Impact Report

Creating Opportunity Through Housing



Northwest Housing Alternatives aims to create opportunity through housing

Founded in 1983, NHA has developed affordable homes in 16 counties across Oregon and has a current portfolio of 1,885 units within 100 properties. Tonight, over 2,800 Oregonians will fall asleep in safe and dignified homes developed by NHA.

In 2018, NHA was voted the #4 best medium-sized nonprofit to work for by the Oregon Business 100 Best survey. Each year, nonprofits are ranked based on work environment, management and communications, mission and goals, career development and learning, and benefits and compensation. 

In addition, NHA continued to provide critical services to Oregonians in need of a place to call home through our homeless intervention and resident services departments as well as the development of new affordable housing units.

2018 Overview

$13.3 million: the collective annual savings of all NHA residents compared to market rate housing.

$16,000: the average household income of an NHA resident.

97 percent: rate of evictions prevented by the Resident Services and Homeless Intervention teams.

More than $6M: Housing Development and Asset Management’s investments in Minority, Women-owned, Emerging Small Businesses, helping to further socio-economic equity in underserved communities

$200 million: Total real-estate value of NHA assets

NHA Campus Update

In 2018, we made significant progress on the new Northwest Housing Alternatives campus, which includes:

28 units of permanent affordable housing

60% expansion of the Annie Ross House emergency shelter for families

An Operations and Direct Services Center to serve more than 2,800 people per year

The project has remained on track and on budget, and we anticipate finalizing all three of the components of the campus by Fall 2019. This project committed to using at least 22% MWESB (minority or women-owned emerging small business) subcontractors and surpassed that number to 28%, representing more than $4.2 million in NWESB contracts.
