CHANGE THAT STRENGTHENS . . .
2010 WAS A PIVOTAL YEAR FOR THE NHP FOUNDATION. New staff and board members provided the ideas, insights, and expertise needed to help this seasoned affordable housing organization respond to a shifting economic landscape.
Effecting change meant focusing attention on improving all aspects of our operations. Practically speaking, this meant ensuring that:
• our real estate portfolio performed well • our properties were managed carefully • marketing to future residents was effective • resident services were well-executed
Equally important was the re-balancing of our real estate portfolio. To better concentrate our assets, a few properties were sold while a number of properties were rehabilitated to meet the affordable housing needs of the residents we serve. In the course of 2010, NHPF proved that it could continue to be a vibrant and effective player in the development, rehabilitation, and management of affordable housing for low- to moderate-income families and seniors. We are committed to making changes that will allow us to continue creating and maintaining affordable housing properties that are broadly accessible to low- to moderate-income families and seniors. We invite you to join us in seeking out opportunities to create vibrant communities.

THE WORK OF THE NHP FOUNDATION (NHPF)
IS ABOUT PRESERVATION.
Whether through development, rehabilitation, or acquisition,
our mission is to provide safe, clean, and affordable housing for
low- to moderate-income families and seniors.
NHPF BELIEVES WHERE YOU LIVE MATTERS!
AT THE START OF 2010, our new CEO, Richard F. Burns, laid out his holistic approach to providing affordable housing. He put emphasis on
residents, teamwork, accountability, and transparency:
• Residents —because without NHPF’s affordable properties, residents would likely spend more than half their income on housing. • Teamwork —because it is crucial to creating a new system of delivery. • Accountability —because it is important that we take full responsibility for our results in order to ensure that we can execute our mission. • Transparency —because we need openness, accountability, and communication to accomplish our goals.

TO EXPLORE AREAS FOR GROWTH, a New Business Development team was formed. With the addition of Neal T. Drobenare, whose career
has centered on real estate development, and Frank P. Cerbini, whose
career includes the preservation and development of affordable housing
nationwide, the search for fresh opportunities began.
In New York, NHPF was named a Qualified Developer, allowing it to
participate in the New York City Housing Preservation and Development
Multifamily Program. In Washington, DC, NHPF formed a partnership with
Vision of Victory Community Development Corporation to serve as a
general partner, co-developer, and co-owner of Alabama Avenue Senior
Housing: a 91-unit new construction high-rise for low-income seniors.
THE GROVE AT TRINITY MILLS, TEXAS
TO IMPROVE THE OPERATING PERFORMANCE of NHPF’s portfolio, Fred C. Mitchell, whose career includes over 25 years of property and
asset management in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, joined the NHPF
team to begin a significant reorganization of the Foundation’s asset
management. The portfolio was divided into regions and new full-service
property management firms were brought in to manage each region:
Hallkeen in Connecticut and Massachusetts; Latter & Blum in Louisiana;
WASHINGTON DODD APARTMENTS, NEW JERSEY
The Lynd Company for Texas and Florida; and Village Green for New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, and Missouri. To ensure the stability and scalability of the
new property management, Tax Credit Asset Management (TCAM), a core
asset management and advisory firm, was selected to provide unified asset
monitoring, owner representation, risk mitigation, compliance, and reporting.
This new team approach to asset management has stabilized the operations
and positioned the properties both financially and operationally.

Through lessons learned from the pilot program funded by the Freddie
Mac Foundation in New Orleans, NHPF expanded its Pathway to Healthy
Living program across all of our sites with initiatives including:
• after-school and adult education
• health and wellness
• financial literacy
Our after-school and teen programs were included in the latest edition
of Creating Opportunities for Families through Resident Services:
A Practitioner’s Manual . The African American Museum of Art in Dallas,
Texas invited our Dallas Metroplex after-school programs to exhibit over
100 pieces of children’s artwork. In Atlantic City, New Jersey, Pathways

CHANGE THAT LEADS . . .
OVER THE PAST YEAR, we have thought a lot about our slogan, “Where you live matters.” Each of us on the Board and staff know that this is true. We expend a great deal of energy to maintain an effective business model that addresses both operational and mission driven needs. In 2010, the NHP Foundation’s leadership team was expanded to meet that challenge. It created a more efficient organization—financially-disciplined, but nimble enough to take advantage of opportunities to create quality properties and services for thousands of our residents. Our holistic approach, which combines affordable housing with active resident service programs, leads to stable communities for low- to moderate-income families and seniors. We are committed to developing and preserving even more affordable housing in the coming year and to providing families with safe, quality places to live and gain financial stability. I hope that you will join NHPF in effecting change that makes a difference. By joining forces we can, and will, make more affordable housing available in the months and years ahead.
