In the heart of downtown Houston where oil companies, banks, wine bars and restaurants thrive sits a small historic building at 1414 Congress Street. Beautifully renovated by New Hope Housing, the building is a 57-unit single room occupancy (SRO) affordable, supportive housing community. With the reopening of this property in 2010, New Hope continues its tradition of finding innovative ways to provide homes for Houston’s neediest citizens—a place where people with modest incomes live in dignity.

New Hope has an award-winning formula that keeps rents low by carrying no permanent debt and brings stylish design to affordable housing. Since 1995, New Hope Housing has offered quality, supportive housing to more than 6,200 people including veterans, the elderly, students, those with minor disabilities, individuals overcoming substance abuse, the working poor, and the formerly homeless.
