Operation Pathways is an affiliate of the NHP Foundation (NHPF). NHPF was founded in 1989 to help preserve America’s affordable housing. Building on their commitment to affordable housing, NHPF launched its resident services division in 1996 to provide programs and service coordination for their residents. As this resident services division grew, it took on the name Operation Pathways and developed nationally recognized programs and services. In 2015, Operation Pathways became an independent 501(c)(3) affiliated with NHPF. This change was made to allow the Operation Pathways to expand its impact and serve more affordable housing communities across the country.
