|A low income housing apartment building in Houston, Texas|
It started with a helping hand but ended up a commitment by Joy Horak-Brown, executive director of New Hope Housing in Houston, Texas. The company began in 1993 and opened their first single-unit apartments to low-income residents of Houston in 1997. Now Executive Director Joy Horak-Brown joined the company shortly after. Why? It was the quality of the units that engaged her interest and won her over.
