Receives First Donation

Houston, Texas– Portfolio Resident Services, Inc. is glad to announce that the organization has received a generous first donation for The Purpose Fund from Ms. Virginia Couch.

Throughout scholar experience, The Purpose Fund strives to support recipients by engaging with them and their institutions, insuring they have the resources needed to succeed from enrollment to employment.

PRS is the largest third-party resident services provider in the United Sates serving over 300 mutifamily properties.

Coastal Bend Crossing

Aransas Pass, TX – Brompton Community Housing Development Corporation (Brompton) and Texas Inter-Faith Management Corporation (TIFM) hosted the official ribbon-cutting event for Coastal Bend Crossing on August 10th. This new upscale affordable housing community brings 80 multifamily units to the workforce of San Patricio County and the surrounding Coastal Bend Region. 

Brompton and its lead consultant, Texas Inter-Faith Housing Corporation, developed this apartment community using Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Funds administered by the Texas General Land Office. The development team engaged fellow Texas-based firms, Cross Architects and Nations Construction, to design and build Coastal Bend Crossing.   

The apartment community is at full capacity with a growing waitlist of prospective tenants. TIFM has begun working with its alliance organization, Portfolio Resident Services, Inc. (PRS), to bring empowerment programs and resident services to all the residents of Coastal Bend Crossing.

Brompton, TIFM, and PRS are all part of the Inter-Faith Group, an alliance of 501(c)(3) non-profits whose mission is to develop stable housing, manage growing communities, and provide quality resident services nationally.
