A note from our Chairman of the Board


My desire as the Chairman of the Board of Directors is to ensure that our agencies mission and agency goals are accomplished. Our primary focus in the up coming FY year 2016 will be to improve residential services, to strengthen our community partnerships and develop new partnerships. The Board of Directors have committed to HUD, the Housing Commission and most importantly the residents to make sure that all areas of policies, procedures, regulations and legislation, implemented locally, state and on the federal levels will be followed. As we continue to strive for excellence in day to day operations the decisions made will reflect excellence in service for our residents, future residents and the community in which we serve. Although Benton Harbor Housing Commission had been deemed troubled by HUD, working with our Recovery Team to address all areas of concern has allowed our agency the access and autonomy to reach our goal of being removed from the troubled list in 2012. Our continuing goal is to become a premier agency in the 21st Century.
