Message from our Executive Director

Thank you for visiting the Canton Housing Authority website. As the Executive Director, it is very important to me to provide qualified families with safe, decent and affordable housing of the highest quality consistent with available funding. The uncertain economic times we are experiencing have made the way the mission is carried out more critical than ever. We have to ensure that in our administrative spending to maximize the funding available to improve the properties we own, explore new development opportunities in a wider range of neighborhoods and expand our partnerships with others who share our vision. I expect nothing less than excellence from staff, and responsibility from our residents and clients.

The structure of Canton Housing Authority is changing drastically in response to both Federal mandates and today's economic realities. As the Executive Director of Canton Housing Authority, I believe we should all be unwilling to settle for anything short of excellence. Tough economic times call for tough decisions, and this agency must step up to the challenge.

We are reducing administrative costs to focus on maximizing funding for program delivery. Canton Housing Authority must first work smart, and then work hard. Our goal is to reduce the concentration of poverty in some areas of the city per HUD regulations, and to provide a wider variety of housing options for low-income families. As we continue to grow, we invite you to learn more about what the housing authority has to offer. If we can improve our website in any way, please do not hesitate to let us know your thoughts. Please contact us at (770) 479-4969, if you have questions or comments. Thank you for visiting.
