Accessible and Affordable Housing Development in Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend

AHRI’s volunteerBoard has developed three rental properties in Corpus Christi and serves as the property manager for two of these supported housing properties. These include:

  • 1602 South Staples Street- an apartment complex with five one-bedroom units
  • Riley Gardens- a shared 3-bedroom home
  • Seventh Street- two transitional efficiency units

These properties are fully accessible for individuals with physical disabilities. Combined, these properties have provided transitional and permanent housing for 10 households over the past year. HUD Section 811 funds were utilized to develop both Riley Gardens and South Staples Street Housing and to subsidize operating expenses. The Section 811 program requires an independent Board of Directors to own each property separately, and allows a Management Agent for daily management activities. AHRI is the Management Agent for Riley Gardens; Suzanne Smith Property Development is the Management Agent for South Staples Street.
