Resident Associations are voted into office by their fellow residents to represent their interests and to serve as leaders in each public housing community. Resident Association members:
- Improve the quality of life and resident satisfaction, and participate in self-help initiatives to enable residents to create a positive living environment and
- Promote programs and activities that address the needs of the communities.
Resident Association members have monthly meetings where they make decisions about services needed and upcoming activities.
