Public Housing Mission Statement

Our aim is to ensure safe, decent, and affordable housing; create opportunities for residents’ self-sufficiency and economic independence; and assure fiscal integrity by all program participants.

In order to achieve this mission, we will:

  • Recognize the residents as our ultimate customer
