State Housing Finance Agencies (HFAs) are state-chartered authorities established to help meet the affordable housing needs of the residents of their states. The lives of thousands of everyday people, and the communities in which they live and work, have been transformed by the federal housing programs HFAs administer. These programs are the difference between homelessness and home, between vulnerability and security, between hopes and dreams come true.
Every day HFA’s use federally supported programs to make having a home a reality for thousands of people. The National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) produced a video chronicling the stories of how some of the lives are transformed by the programs. In the state of Missouri they chose to tell the story of Jennie Johnson who resides at Bethel Ridge Estates, a senior community in Columbia MO.
Bethel Ridge Estates and Bethel Ridge Estates II are an Affordable Equity Partners, Inc. (AEP) investment and Fairway Management, Inc. (FWM) managed properties.
