Resident Leadership

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. 

The JWRC are the presidents of the public housing resident associations who represent the interests of residents, in general.  For more information about the JWRC or Resident Associations, please contact any of the following JWRC officers:
