housing is about more than just vouchers and rental properties.
It’s also about helping people end the cycle of poverty
and begin the cycle of self improvement. But such a goal isn’t
easy to achieve. It requires a businesslike approach and goal-oriented
thinking; and, that’s exactly what the HCHA brings to its operations. From its innovative senior-housing
programs to its keen management of the bottom line, few other
housing authorities can match what Guy Rankin and his team
have accomplished in 2006.To everyone at the HCHA,
I offer my most sincere congratulations.You truly are the
best in the business, and a shining example of how we can
provide critical services to our most needy citizens.”
