“I’ve lived here for about 6 years and in the time here, I’ve learned that this is a great community. Everyone has been polite and communication between neighbors has been great. I’ve enjoyed living at Stead Manor.”

– Tye (Resident at Stead Manor)

“RHA has helped me out by blessing me and my kids with a beautiful home and having my little family back.”

– Anonymous (S8 Client)

“I’m settled into my new home. In the mornings I look out a big window and the sun rises. I love it here. Cori does so many great things, Cathy keeps us in line, and Patricia is the calming force. They see us. It’s hard getting in (to public housing), but it feels like a forever home to me. Thank you RHA.”

– Shawn
