From the New Haven Register:
The Elm City Communities/Housing Authority of New Haven holds its annual "Back to School Fair" at Clinton School in New Haven, Conn., on Tuesday August 6, 2019. In addition to new school supplies and activities for the kids like face painting and snacks, families were able to access resources for education and health services.
From Pew Stateline:
After her daughter died from lupus, Charlene Green was left caring for her two grandchildren. But their housing situation was precarious at best: mold and mildew everywhere, ceiling caving in.
To get her landlord to make much-needed repairs in their Washington, D.C., apartment, the 62-year-old withheld rent — only to be threatened with eviction.
From Curbed DC:
One of the District’s biggest landlords has put out an ambitious plan to refinance, repair, and redevelop roughly a third of its overall portfolio. That landlord is the D.C. Housing Authority (DCHA), which owns and manages over 8,000 public housing units citywide. While it is still in draft form, the plan—first discussed earlier this year during the D.C. government’s annual budget negotiations—aims to preliminarily address 2,610 units that require urgent upgrades.
From Cincinnati CityBeat:
Connie Benton has lived at Findlater Gardens for the last 18 years. She likes the sense of community among most of the residents in the 600 townhomes owned and run by the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority in Winton Hills, about eight miles north of downtown Cincinnati.
But her family has also experienced violence here, and some of her relatives struggle with the trauma that comes with those experiences.
From the Chicago Tribune:
Let’s dispense with the obvious, shall we? Three new Chicago buildings, which combine public libraries and public housing, are head and shoulders above the Robert Taylor Homes, Cabrini-Green and the rest of the city’s dehumanizing, now-demolished public housing projects.
