PRIDE, the Housing Authority’s new tenant orientation program, is an acronym for People taking Responsibility for Individual Development and Economic Success. The aim of the program is to familiarize new residents with program rules and regulations, fraud prevention, and onsite social service programs offered to residents.
Staff members from administration, property management, and maintenance participate in the program. Contact information and an overview of each department are provided to participants. Residents also view a power point presentation entitled “Welcome to Your New Home” which provides housekeeping hints and expectations for proper apartment maintenance.
The primary goals are to positively promote public housing, build stronger relationships with residents, promote community and self pride.
