Homeownership provides a sense of security to families and promotes strong neighborhoods. So, we are proud to announce that as of September 2008, Houston Hope has helped 120 families to purchase quality affordable homes in re-energized areas of the city. Houston Hope is Mayor Bill White's initiative to reinvest in several of Houston 's historic neighborhoods through a combination of stabilizing activities such as coordination of public safety programs, rehabbing existing homes, providing quality new affordable homes, and improving infrastructure and drainage.
