OUR MISSION: PROSPERA provides safe, high-quality, affordable housing with support services to those in need.
Founders Mike Hooper and Ron Anderson formed PROSPERA in 1993 to address the depleted availability of quality, affordable housing for low-income individuals and families, as well as seniors and persons with special needs. Their shared vision for restoring communities has resulted in a steady growth of opportunities for PROSPERA residents to succeed in many areas of life.
A 501c3 nonprofit organization, PROSPERA began its efforts by first acquiring multi-family properties that were designated for removal from the affordable housing market. Complementing its diverse housing options with a variety of educational, lifestyle, and social services, PROSPERA has seen numerous residents and members of surrounding neighborhoods achieve both personal and professional goals through the stability afforded by this comprehensive approach.
PROSPERA Housing Community Services is an experienced organization building and operating supportive housing in South Texas. We’ve been empowering families for nearly 25 years by providing safe, high-quality, affordable housing and supportive services.
Our supportive housing provides a starting point for pursuing goals, fulfilling dreams, restoring spirit, and building self-endurance – all leading to a brighter outlook. PROSPERA is a proven business model, an enduring institution, and a fulfilled commitment to provide quality housing.
As was the mission of our founders, we’re here for our residents who aspire to rent affordable, secure homes by maximizing life-stabilizing, transformational services.
PROSPERA, led by a seasoned management team, has proven to be an excellent community partner positively impacting employers, schools, residents, and commerce in our municipalities.

In 1997, PROSPERA acquired Wedge Management, Inc., a property management company, and also maintains one-third ownership in the National Housing Management Corporation (NHMC), a low-income housing management firm.
From the civic and community-minded handful of individuals who comprised the organization’s initial efforts, PROSPERA has grown to restore over 49 properties in 19 cities throughout South Texas, providing a place to call home for thousands of residents. There are always plans on the horizon to expand the area of focus to make even more homes available to more people.
