Resident Services

BHA residents can take advantage of a number of support services, such as the Family Self-Sufficiency Program and health and learning initiatives. Security services are also built into residency at our public housing developments.

Family Self-Sufficiency
The FSS Program provides low-income families opportunities for education, job training, counseling and other forms of social service assistance, while living in assisted housing, so they can obtain skills necessary to achieve self-sufficiency. Many FSS participants have achieved the dream of homeownership.

What’s more, the FSS Raising Champions Program continues to help FSS participants to teach early literacy skills such as vocabulary and phonological awareness to their pre-school children.

Teaching kids enduring life lessons

In a fun learning environment, resident kids learn that they are valued, loved and have great potential. The many activities include mentoring; homework time; lessons regarding bullying, drugs and alcohol, peer pressure and violence; athletics; plus fun events from cookouts to music education. What’s more, children and their families benefit from food and clothing supplied by the program. 

Dental visits

Residents of our family developments Crescent Court and Roosevelt Heights benefit from annual visits from the Protecting All Smiles dental group. In addition to cleanings, x-rays, fillings and sealings, children receive education on nutrition and overall good oral health.

Services for elderly and disabled residents

Our Service Coordinators help connect residents to a variety of services, improve health and nutrition, socialize, and live active and creative lives. The many activities and programs include:

  • Mental health services provided by a clinical professional
  • Dental services  
  • Food, entertainment and activities provided by area students
  • The Brown Bag food program  
  • Health courses such as a course on living with chronic health conditions
  • A variety of programs held in coordination with the Dorn Davies Senior Center, including holiday parties and preparation services

In these and other ways, residents have opportunities for individual growth and community involvement.
