Week of Gratitude

Last week on our Facebook page, we shared our love for some of our most meaningful business and community partnerships. In case you missed it, we gathered all the stories here for you to enjoy.

Ending homelessness and providing a safe and healthy home for everyone is a tall order, and it takes dozens of people and organizations working together to meet that goal. We are so grateful for the support of the following organizations as well as all of our partnerships that help create more opportunities for people in poverty.

Loveridge Hunt & Co.

Loveridge Hunt & Co., CPA’s is a Washington State-based CPA Firm working with clients throughout the United States. They specialize in providing auditing, accounting, tax preparation and consulting services to affordable housing developers, builders, syndicators, investors, not-for-profit organizations and housing authorities.

Loveridge Hunt & Co. has worked with NHA for at least 15 years and takes pride in focusing efforts in the affordable housing industry.

Thank you for the strong partnership over the years, Loveridge Hunt!

Network for Oregon Affordable Housing

NOAH is a mission-driven lender and certified Community Development Financial Institution working to solve Oregon’s housing affordability crisis. NOAH provides an array of financial tools, including pre-development, bridge and permanent loans, as well as technical assistance to borrowers. NOAH has provided financing to NHA of approximately $55M on over 30 projects and approximately 1300 units of affordable housing throughout Oregon.

NOAH has been instrumental in building NHA’s predevelopment pipeline, helping to bring countless NHA projects to fruition including the most recent addition—Pomeroy Place. We are also partnering closely on the upcoming NHA campus redevelopment that will transform the Milwaukie campus into a social service hub.

Thank you, NOAH, for your strong support in helping us grow.

Mary’s Woods at Marylhurst

Born from Mary’s Wood’s mission to ensure the dignity, independence, well-being and security of older adults, Mary’s Woods and NHA have established a partnership with the goal of improving quality of life and the ability to age in place by providing services to low income seniors in their home.

With depressive disorders and feelings of isolation highly prevalent in this population, the life enrichment programs offered by Mary’s Woods encourages socialization and community building. In addition, it offers opportunities to introduce NHA residents to local resources meant to aid seniors. Mary’s Woods also offers fully or partially subsidized in-home care to assist seniors so they may continue to live independently. These services also reduce the number of emergency hospital visits caused by lack of home health services.

We are so grateful to have Mary’s Woods as one of our dedicated partners—and we know our residents are too.

Emmert International

Emmert Development works with Northwest Housing Alternatives to place people in need of housing into a number of properties throughout Clackamas County. This provides our participants choice in finding a unit that best suits their needs.

We appreciate the partnership we have built with Emmert and their commitment to helping folks experiencing the crisis of poverty. Terry believes in giving people a second chance. It is partners like Emmert Development and Emmert International that makes our job possible.

Thank you Terry and everyone at Emmert Development!

Income Property Management

Income Property Management has successfully managed affordable properties since 1981. We currently manage a total of 2,281 affordable units. Our mission is to provide clean and affordable housing for our residents so they have not only an attractive home, but also a vibrant and welcoming community in which to thrive.

NHA and IPM have worked together since 2015 to provide high-quality property management to several NHA properties. During this time, we’ve tripled the number of buildings under IPM because of their high performance, appropriate scaling, and willingness to invest in infrastructure.

We are so grateful for this important partnership!

Bank of America

It truly takes a community to be able to tackle the complex challenge of homelessness and affordable housing, and we cannot do it alone.

Bank of America is committed to building pathways to economic mobility for underserved populations through housing supports, workforce development and addressing hunger.

NHA is proud to have Bank of America’s support for the NHA’s Building Futures capital campaign that will transform NHA’s Milwaukie campus into an affordable housing social service hub for low-income families, seniors, and people with disabilities. We are so grateful for Bank of America’s support!
