HHR was created to assist the current and potential clients and
residents of the Houston Housing Authority by developing innovative
approaches to affordable housing and client
self-sufficiency. The mission of HHR is
to create innovative approaches to
promote self-sufficiency, advance affordable housing, and improve
quality of life.
HHR is a catalyst for the delivery of effective programs
and services to those receiving, or eligible to receive housing
assistance. We accomplish this by being a leader, partner
and advocate among the area's nonprofit human service and
affordable housing agencies.
