The Resident Services Department is important at the Wheeling Housing Authority. The department offers many activities and community services for the people who live in our communities. We contract with local social service providers and community agencies to provide recreational and educational programs for our youth and their families. We also provide recreational activities and health care services links for the elderly.
Family Self-Sufficiency Program
the FSS Program I received my GED and got my first job. It didn't
pay much, but it felt good to get a paycheck. It wasn't long
before I went to my case manager and asked how I could get a better
paying job. He helped me with my resume and in a few weeks my
paycheck doubled. I developed confidence and applied for financial
aid and went to school for a few semesters. I didn't even finish
my degree when my boss offered me a full-time job with benefits! I
never saw myself as an independent working mother. Sometimes I
still can't believe it. It was hard juggling work and school and
kids, but I did it!"
The Wheeling Housing Authority received the ROSS Grant- Resident Opportunities and Supportive Services through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The goal is to improve the quality of life in our high rises and to link residents with existing services in the community.
A coordinator works to help residents get needed social services to maintain their independent living status. The coordinator also works with elected
resident councils to plan activities and trips.
