Hope Housing Authority Hosts Community Coffee
Hope Housing Authority hosted this morning's Hope Hempstead County Community Coffee at their offices located at 720 Texas Street. Many locals attended and visited with the Housing Authority Board and Leadership team while they snacked on a beautiful spread catered by Sheba's Family Restaurant. 

The Hope Housing Authority is a public housing agency that provides affordable housing for up to 380 low and moderate income households through its Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) and Public Housing programs. Materials were available for those interested in becoming a HCV Landlord that described the program and specifications. The Housing Authority has also been in the process of renovating some of the homes, and pictures of the remodeled homes were on display at each table. 

Interim Director, Zach Hicks expressed his gratitude for everyone showing up today, saying that they have been trying to build more partnerships and relationships throughout the community so they can better serve their residents. You can view the full message from Interim Director Hicks HERE.
