Public Housing Resident Services

The Resident Services Department implements several programs, services and activities that strive to improve the quality of life for public housing residents. This is accomplished by reducing dependence on the welfare system and empowering residents to take control of their lives and neighborhoods. Services are available through referral and onsite at each public housing development.

Service Coordinators are available to assist residents with a wide variety of personal and community needs that allow residents to maintain self-sufficiency in their homes. The Service Coordinators work closely with Property Managers to:

  • Identify Resident Goals
  • Develop Strategies to Link Residents with Services and Overcome Barriers that Impede Access to Those Services
  • Bring Services On-Site for High-Priority Resident Goals
  • Monitor the Outcome of Services
