Housing for New Hope honors landlords
Housing for New Hope, a nonprofit agency bent on serving the homeless community in Orange and Durham counties, gathered on Friday, April 29, to thank those that make their mission possible—the landlords. Housing for New Hope works to place homeless individuals and families—as well as those at risk of being homeless—in permanent housing. To do that, the re-housing team must work closely with landlords, often asking them to lower rates or overlook criminal history and credit issues that might normally prevent someone from being accepted as a tenant.
