#HousersAtWork Stories


Public housing agencies (PHAs) of all sizes are responding to the COVID-19 health crisis while continuing to house families and provide platforms for opportunity. NAHRO’s #HousersAtWork campaign shows how much our PHA members do for their residents and communities – especially during this pandemic. 

This page is a rolling archive of the stories that we’re sharing. For more information on the campaign and how you can share your stories, visit www.nahro.org/news/housersatwork-phas-responding-to-covid-19/.
