Loves the outdoors. Used to live there.
Right now in New Braunfels, over 1,056 children don’t know where they’ll sleep tonight.
We believe that’s 1,056 too many.
Works two jobs. Can’t afford one bedroom
We’re working to help women who are working to make ends meet. The average hourly wage in New Braunfels isn’t enough to cover an apartment. Let’s change that.
NB Housing Partners is an organization made up of people from New Braunfels who want our city to be a place where every family and individual is able to count on something most take for granted – a bed.
New Braunfels has experienced explosive growth and will keep growing – but social and community services haven’t kept up, and there’s a serious lack of affordable housing in our community. While there are many different causes of homelessness, our community’s lack of affordable housing is one of the most common local causes. Homelessness can happen to anyone.
The majority of the people we serve are longtime residents of New Braunfels who are now experiencing homelessness. These are not nameless, faceless people. They are veterans who have bravely served our country, families with children, neighbors who lost their jobs – they are people who need help getting back on their feet.
NB Housing Partners wants to help them find a home by giving them the social, behavioral and health support services they need. That’s why we created the First Footing program.
Funding for the First Footing program is coming from a variety of sources, including state and federal grants specifically designated for projects like this, local and regional foundations, and individual donations.
NB Housing Partners is proud of this project. We are saving lives and making our community stronger.
What We’re Doing
Comal County Homeless Coalition
People in our community who are homeless or whose housing is unstable remain important- as humans, just like us. They need our help to navigate lives that have become complicated and we, as a community, are in a position to help them. Community organizations are coming together to develop New Braunfels’ first shelter and supporting services.
New Braunfels Food Bank
NB Housing Partners donated land upon which the San Antonio Food Bank built the New Braunfels Food Bank, a 28,000-sq ft, two-story fulfillment center that provides efficient distribution of food aid to families in need as well as regional non-profit organizations.
In addition to warehouse and distribution space, the facility provides educational opportunities, meeting rooms, and a community garden.
It’s Their Community Too.
