What We Do

Portfolio Resident Services (PRS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that strives to improve quality of life and offer opportunity and empowerment for individuals, families, and senior citizens within the affordable housing developments we serve. We provide CORES-certified supportive services in specific categories in order for clients to achieve state agency compliance, including programs that elevate knowledge and marketable skills, enhance a healthy lifestyle, and lift families up, encouraging collaboration and building community along the way.

The services we provide are free, and participation is voluntary to all residents in the community. We work with a diverse group of volunteers and community partners, including nonprofits, local businesses and global corporations, each striving to provide the tools necessary to create opportunity and maximize potential.

Staying true to our founders’ original mission, Portfolio Resident Services continues to be on the cutting edge of innovation through the Good Neighbor Program, the name by which we operate onsite. A monthly calendar of events is carried out by a professional Resident Services Coordinator.

PRS is uniquely positioned to provide creative, flexible, and scalable programming tailored to uplift each community and its individual residents. From our early foundations to our progressive vision, PRS continues to serve with compassion, integrity, and experience.


To build community and enhance lives by providing customized, state-compliant supportive service plans for affordable housing residents nationwide.


To uplift and empower communities through service, advocacy and collaboration, encouraging growth, connection and progress on both local and national levels.




Our Story

In 1966, nine visionaries came together to create Houston Interfaith, a unique group that was non-profit, non-partisan, and non-sectarian. They were united for the single purpose of addressing inequality by making adequate housing available. Early on, this group recognized that “housing” meant much more than simply a building; it was an inclusive term encompassing a network of related social services concerned with the total human needs of the residents. As the need for supportive services grew, our reach extended beyond Houston as the coalition continued to address the critical housing shortage and engage residents living in attainable housing communities. We answered the call with the creation of Texas Inter-Faith Supportive Services. In 2009, we expanded nationwide and became Portfolio Resident Services.

Today, PRS is a member of the Inter-Faith Group, a nonprofit coalition focused on all aspects of housing, including real estate development, management, and resident services. With operations in more than 330 communities across the country, PRS is the nation’s largest third-party nonprofit resident services provider. Through our Good Neighbor Program, we partner with diverse clients to service any community in need of resident programs.
