A Note From The Director
Think Spring!
The winter of 2015 came upon us with vengeance, cold, cold and and more cold!! Thanks to all residents for your patience while our Maintenance crews cleared snow and salted walkways for your safety. As spring arrives, so will the thaw and due to the winter construction, lawns will be messy and will need time to grow. Please take care of these areas to help beautify our neighborhoods. Be sure to check ou our website and facebook account. There is new and updated information available on both.
- James A. Dewey, Executive Director

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. Richard sat on the Housing Board of Commissioners for 32 years, 1991 to 2013. During his term, he was involved with the State, Regional and National levels of the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials.

 

NOW TAKING SENIOR APPLICATIONS:
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.
