Better Your Life

What does it mean to be self-reliant? Taking care of yourself? Making a living? Supporting your family? Being self-reliant can begin with accomplishments like these.But, real self-sufficiency starts when you look beyond the worries of day-to-day living and begin to shape your own future. The Resident Services Department at RRHA connects public housing residents with opportunities in education, job training and employment.

Funding through HUD, along with strong partnerships with community organizations, make possible a great many of the programs and opportunities offered to residents. Our goal is to provide programs and resources for residents to help you improve the quality of your family life, promote and encourage self-determination and self-sufficiency, and avoid pitfalls that can hold you back.

Self-Sufficiency: Helping residents achieve a level of personal and financial responsibility that would permit them to support their families without welfare and perhaps, ultimately, without housing assistance. Quality of Life: Helping disabled and elderly low-income persons achieve a level of personal and financial stability and independence.

Our Vision

It is the vision of the Resident Services Department to provide an integrated system of service delivery that provides opportunities for low-income families to become self-sufficient and or improve their quality of life.

Our Mission

It is the mission of the Resident Services Department to make assisted housing a place of opportunity for its residents (Public Housing, Section 8 and general community); to support residents in their efforts to utilize the services provided by area agencies to help develop self-sufficiency; and to build partnerships with area agencies and neighborhoods.
