Operation Pathways Communities at NHPF Properties

Operation Pathways has 25 years of experience providing housing-based programs and services to residents living in NHPF’s affordable housing communities across the country. Operation Pathways’ successful approach to delivering high-quality programs is based on a philosophy that is impactful, innovative, and in-house. Resident services coordinators assess the needs of residents and respond by implementing programs and services to improve their quality of life. Our programs engage and empower residents in innovative and interactive ways and allow them to choose their own pathway to achieve their individual financial, academic, and health goals.

Operation Pathways is a CORES-certified resident services provider and was the first resident services provider in the country to receive this distinction. CORES certification is awarded to affordable housing service providers based on the strength and quality of their infrastructure, systems, programs, and outcomes.

Operation Pathways provides programs and services through four different pathways: Academic Achievement, Financial Stability, Healthier Living, and Aging in Place. Academic Achievement promotes ongoing education and training for children and adults leading to increased employment and scholastic opportunities. Healthier Living promotes activities and lifestyles that lead to physical, psychological, and emotional well-being. Financial Stability provides residents with sound financial practices that lead to increased incomes, decreased expenses, and the building of assets. Through Aging in Place, senior residents are engaged in activities and programs that encourage socialization, increase social support, improve awareness and education, and prevent elder abuse.

Pathway to Academic Achievement focuses on the educational needs of residents. Operation Pathways promotes academic success and lifelong learning as a means to break the cycle of poverty. We partner with organizations that design and implement afterschool and summer programs for school-age children which improve academic success and produce significant, measurable results.

Pathway to Healthier Living promotes activities and lifestyles that lead to physical, psychological, and emotional well-being. Operation Pathways partners with organizations and individuals to develop and implement multi-faceted programs devoted to healthier living, including fitness classes, healthy cooking workshops, smoking cessation programs, and community garden projects. Often, mobile health services come directly to properties to provide health screenings, vaccinations, and diagnose potentially serious issues.

Pathway to Financial Stability educates residents in sound financial practices to increase income, decrease expenses, and build assets. The financial education program provides instruction related to credit, savings, proper insurance coverage, and investments. With this education, residents learn how to build budgets and save for the future. Operation Pathways also provides opportunities for residents to increase their employability through workforce development, including technology workshops, GED support, resume writing, and interview preparation.

Pathway to Aging in Place engages residents in NHPF’s senior communities by providing programs and services that give senior residents the tools they need to ensure economic security, prevent illness, improve health, understand their legal rights, and live in a safe environment. Seniors are engaged through activities and programs that encourage socialization, increase social support, improve awareness and education, and prevent elder abuse.
