R. Wayne Koehler


A financial advisor by trade and owner of Par Advisors, LLC, Wayne consults with banks and other institutions regarding affordable housing and CRA. This profession found him inspired to create his own way of providing improved living for others less fortunate. So Wayne took to applying his altruistic nature, investing his spare time and emotional energy to bring together like-minded partner companies and investors, resulting in NHA's new direction towards property development in 2009.

It was a brave start, with assets at the time of only $3,000, no properties and, honestly, no idea where to begin, but also with copious amounts of belief to make this materialize. Wayne's initiative to make affordable housing a reality grew to such a success that as of 2020, NHA has over $3.2 million in Total Assets, plus a priceless number of grateful residents!
In just 10 short years, NHA has developed 145 stabilized housing units on 5 properties with one property dedicated solely to survivors of domestic violence.
