Building upon a firm foundation . . .

IN 2011, THE NHP FOUNDATION (NHPF) successfully built upon the organizational improvements implemented in 2010. We are pleased with the progress made in 2011, and eager to continue implementing our goals in 2012 and beyond. We invite you to read about the accomplishments highlighted in this annual report. For more than two decades, NHPF has remained steadfast in our commitment to preserving and creating affordable housing for low- and moderate-income families and seniors. In 2011, we reaffirmed that commitment with the creation of the NHPF Affiliate Program. We welcome the Falls Church Housing Corporation as the first NHPF Affiliate. Through acquisition, rehabilitation, and development, we are maximizing the sustainability of our affordable housing portfolio. Given NHPF’s longstanding presence in Washington, DC, we are particularly pleased to have broken ground in December on our first affordable housing project in the Nation’s Capital—Alabama Avenue Affordable Senior Housing. This project is our second NHPF Affiliate. Our resident services division—Operation Pathways—plays a critical role in turning rental housing properties into thriving communities. We are proud to have directed almost $865,000 to fund the many Operation Pathways programs, and thank the national funding organizations who joined NHPF in giving their support. Going forward, we have laid the groundwork to accelerate our efforts. This will be greatly facilitated by our new joint venture with a major financial institution and Urban Atlantic, an experienced affordable housing developer and investor. This venture will begin with a $50 million fund to facilitate the acquisition and preservation of affordable housing properties. The critical shortage of affordable rental housing in this country shows no signs of abating. That is why our commitment to preservation, and your ongoing support of NHPF, remain imperative.

Moving Forward

THE NHPF AFFILIATE PROGRAM brings NHPF’s managerial strength in finance, asset management, resident services, and fundraising to local housing programs that cannot support the breadth or depth of staff needed to continue. The housing programs that affiliate with NHPF will realize cost savings and gain the expertise needed to sustain and grow their operations. The Falls Church Housing Corporation (FCHC), a Community Development Corporation, is the first affiliate to align with NHPF. Its agreement with NHPF took effect on June 28, 2011. A 30-year-old organization with a history of public/private partnerships, FCHC operates properties for seniors and low- to moderate-income families in Falls Church, Virginia.

ALABAMA AVENUE SENIOR HOUSING, WASHINGTON, DC

THE OPPORTUNITY FOR NHPF to implement its vision in Washington, DC with the Alabama Avenue Affordable Senior Housing project is a milestone. Alabama Avenue Affordable Senior Housing is a joint venture between NHPF, Allen Chapel AME Church/Vision of Victory CDC (VOV), and District Development Group LLC (DDG). The public-private venture valued at more than $16 Million was made possible through financial support from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Enterprise Community Partners, DC Housing Finance Agency, Deputy Mayor’s Office on Planning and Economic Development, District Department of Housing and Community Development, Freddie Mac, PNC, and the joint venture of DDG, NHPF, and VOV. This project is the second to join the NHPF Affiliate Program. The Alabama Avenue Affordable Senior Housing community is the first property in Washington, DC to be included in NHPF’s portfolio. This accomplishment is expected to be the first of many opportunities for NHPF to preserve and create affordable housing in the District.

If where you live matters, perhaps

NHPF TAKES A “HOUSING FIRST” approach to programs and services. We view safe, clean, affordable housing as the foundation upon which individuals and families become financially self-sufficient and can build assets. NHPF’s resident services program—Operation Pathways—provides an extensive array of programs and services, helping people to help themselves. OPERATION PATHWAYS: • develops and implements outcomes-based programming that measures success by monitoring the positive changes in behavior or increased knowledge and skill levels of our participants • believes that it is our responsibility to create powerful learning experiences in dynamic settings to engage participants in meaningful and effective programs and services • offers programming that capitalizes on the proximity of our community centers to the homes of our participants, focusing on local needs and service gaps

how you live matters even more.

IN 2011, NHPF’S RESIDENT SERVICES PROGRAM, Operation Pathways, provided over 3,000 families and seniors a wide variety of educational, health, and enrichment programming. A few examples are:

• the Brighten Up After School program, encouraging academic achievement

• the Pathway to Healthy Living program, promoting physical, spiritual, and emotional wellness

• the Saving for Tomorrow program, affording participants solid grounding in the principles of financial literacy and planning

Also in 2011, Operation Pathways opened new community centers in Connecticut, Missouri, New Jersey, and Virginia, enhanced through the help of over 3,000 volunteers.
