A message from our Executive Director
This past month, WHA provided Resident Leadership training to those residents who are active in their respective Resident Councils. The training provided information in the following areas: (1) Examined the roles and responsibilities of Resident Leaders and Council members (2) Examined the roles and responsibilities of a Resident Commissioner (3) Learned how to Develop a Section Three action Plan and (4) Learned the fundamentals of grant writing.
The general consensus from the training participants was that the training was worthwhile and extremely informative. Many positive things were said about the facilitator, and many residents hope he will come back in the future to provide additional training.
On March 24thI had the privilege of providing a comprehensive course in grant writing that dealt with such issues as how to create a grants writing team; the development and importance of the Executive Summary; the creation of the Logic Model and how to address the issue of program self-assessment once a grant has been awarded.
Now it is up to you, the residents, to use this training to bring your neighbors to the table, engaging them in the work of your Resident Council, as well as getting them involved appropriately with the Resident Advisory Board, which is supposed to be a body that represents residents agency-wide.
Please feel free to contact your Resident Services Director Ms. Irmina Williams if you need a little help in getting your Council fully engaged. She can be reached at 302-429-0954 x213 or you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.orgYour participation is vital in offering you and your fellow residents a way to build a strong working relationship with WHA, your housing authority, and will ultimately create a positive living environment for everyone.
