In 2012, the McKenna Foundation began conversations with community stakeholders in response to the increasing need for affordable housing. As a result of these discussions, the first local non-profit dedicated to addressing the housing crisis in Comal County, the NB Housing Partners, was established.

The team of professionals and volunteers have established success in helping families transition to independent living and are committed to taking strategic steps to address both immediate housing crises and long-term housing options.

Their achievements have strengthened relationships with local agencies such as the New Braunfels Food Bank, Family Promise of Greater New Braunfels, Crisis Center of Comal County, Any Baby Can, the Salvation Army, and others.

Additionally, the McKenna Foundation has supported many projects related to the local housing and homelessness crisis. This includes land funding for Comal County Habitat for Humanity and homelessness prevention funding for the Salvation Army and Family Life Center. The Foundation also supported the winter shelter pilot program which evolved into the First Footing Program in 2021.


McKenna actively provides services to enhance the health and well-being of the greater New Braunfels community, serving as a partner and resource to others who share our goals — now and for future generations.
