Public Housing Preference

The Housing Authority has historically given priority to homeless families, Veterans, and victims of domestic violence seeking placement in public housing.  On July 1, 2016, The Housing Authority's Public Housing Program implemented a new initiative as an additional means of addressing the area’s homeless crisis. As units at the South Scattered Sites Public Housing become available, they are now offered to a homeless family first. 

Sean Rogan, Housing Authority Executive Director said, “The Housing Authority prides itself in being forward thinking, and using all available resources to ensure that families, like Ms. Beacham’s, have a safe and suitable home.”  Through the Public Housing Program’s homeless initiative, the Housing Authority continues its mission of “Building Better Lives and Better Neighborhoods.”  

Learn more about Ms. Beacham and the Housing Authority's public housing preference in the video below.
