A Note From The Director

Spring has sprung and our long cold winter is behind us!!. The Detroit Tigers have returned to Comerica Park and the Robins are chirping in the trees. As the weather continues to warm and the snow melts, please remember to keep an eye out for your children and your neighbors as you start to enjoy the outdoors. Remember barbeque grilling is allowed but it is not allowed under the covered porches at all villages. Please continue to monitor this website and our Newsletters for updated information regarding upcoming events at PHHC for you and your family to enjoy.

Housing News:

The Dulhut Computer lab re-opened last month and is rocking with attendance. We have an excellent new staff at the lab that is always willing to assist you with your needs in job searching, resume writing and educational website searching.

New maintenance hours: the maintenance department has changed their hours of operation to 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday thru Friday. These new hours took effect April 1st.

Personnel Changes:

The Port Huron Housing Commission is pleased to announce that Val Fusee has joined our team as the Program Eligibility Specialist. This position will help assist new residents in obtaining residency with the Port Huron Housing Commission.

Building Maintenance man Jason Gurnsey has been re-assigned to Dulhut Village which means Tim McIntyre was re-assigned to Desmond Village. Help us by welcoming “Val” to the Port Huron Housing Commission !

Other Housing News:

Housing America Poster Competition will soon be underway. Please, contact your Property Manager or stop in the Dulhut Computer Lab for more details. All kids through 12th grade are eligible to enter a poster into the contest. Two years ago, Port Huron Housing had one high school winner and last year we had one elementary and one middle school winner for the entire State of Michigan!! Let’s make 2014 another winning year for Port Huron Housing!!
