Dear FWHS Community,
This week’s cooler temperatures have our team in a fall mood and reflecting on the good things that have happened in 2021 – and what we want plan to accomplish before year’s end.
We’re thrilled to share that we have renamed the Hillside Apartments at the northeast corner of Downtown Fort Worth “Jennings Place” in honor Devoyd “Dee” Jennings, the longtime CEO of the Fort Worth Metropolitan Black Chamber of Commerce.
Construction has begun on Cowan Place Senior Living, our first residential property in the Stop Six Choice Neighborhood. And we are happily watching crews build The Huntley on East Weatherford Street, a 296-unit, mixed-income community opening in late 2022.
It's also worth noting that to date FWHS has distributed $7.2 million in federal Emergency Rental Assistance to tenants and landlords who lost income due to COVID-19. These funds are keeping people in their homes and helping landlords cover their own bills. We are pleased to partner with the City of Fort Worth to ease what has been a difficult economic recovery for many.
We remain grateful for your support and for each day that our residents have a safe, affordable place to call home.
