    Statement on the Coronavirus

    March 17, 2020


    At Housing for New Hope, the safety and well-being of our residents and staff are our number one priority. In response to the Coronavirus and out of an abundance of caution, we have implemented a number of protocols and precautionary measures at our communities.  

    Effective today, all common spaces, including community rooms and public restrooms, will be closed to residents, visitors and clients. These areas will remain closed until further notice. Public areas, such as stairwells and laundry rooms, will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.

    During this time, our staff will be reaching out to residents in our supportive housing programs with increased frequency to answer questions and to provide support and information on available resources.

    We are also taking additional steps, including the option to work from home, staggered work schedules, social distancing and additional safety and cleaning steps, to protect and support our staff.

    While these measures are in place, staff is available to assist residents and clients and can be reached by contacting 919-489-6282 or info@housingfornewhope.org.



    As the government implements new measures to contain the virus and businesses close or change their hours, many of our residents and clients will be impacted, affecting their ability to purchase food and basic necessities. To assist them, we are providing gift cards and other assistance as needed.

    If you would like to help an individual or family in need, please donate today and provide our neighbors with home and hope.

    Women Celebrate Christmas in New Home

    Durham, N.C. (Dec. 17, 2019) – On Holloway Street near downtown Durham, Lisa, Sandra and Brittney are getting ready to celebrate their first Christmas in a home where they have their own bedrooms, a large kitchen and plenty of space for movie night. In October, the three women moved into Housing for New Hope’s (HNH) latest affordable housing property, Holloway Place.

    “Even with a steady income, many of our neighbors here in Durham are unable to find affordable housing,” says Russell Pierce, HNH’s executive director. “At HNH we believe all of our neighbors deserve a safe, affordable place to call home. Through properties like Holloway Place, we are able to provide individuals with affordable housing that is conveniently located to their jobs, shopping and transportation.”
