A Note From The Director
Winter is just around the corner and the Holidays have begun. As the weather gets cold and the snow starts to fall, please remember to take caution while walking and driving. Please be patient while the maintenance department clears the snow and ice from the parking lots and sidewalks.

The commission recognized MyAsia Jones, 13, as its selection for the Housing America “What Home Means to Me” Poster Contest. The contest required her to create a poster and a narrative of what home means to her. She received at $25 gift card and some artists supplies donated from Art For Good in downtown Port Huron. Pictured are: James A. Dewey the Executive Director of the Port Huron Housing Commission; Bethany L. Davis, principal; MyAsia Jones; and Brett C. VanDrew, student success coach of Central Middle School. The Housing Commission also recognized and dedicated the Dulhut computer lab in the name of Richard S. Pack.

The Port Huron Housing Commission is now accepting applications for their senior living facilities. If you are 62 or older you may apply to live at the newly remodeled Desmond and Peru Villages. The current waiting list for 62 years and older seniors is extremely short, so early application is important to move in quickly.
