#HousersAtWork Stories

In July 2020, NAHRO launched the #HousersAtWork campaign to spotlight and recognize the work of our member public housing agencies as they responded to the COVID-19 health crisis. What started as a way to amplify stories of our members persevering during unprecedented times has expanded to more than 180 that highlight the everyday ways that you strive to better the lives of your residents and staff.

NAHRO is reminded again and again of the work our dedicated #Housers are doing day in and day out. We have thoroughly enjoyed sharing your stories with both our membership and a wider audience through our various social media platforms.

With the increased access to vaccines and the country beginning to reopen, now (May 2021) is an appropriate time to close the #HousersAtWork campaign. We will continue to highlight the good work of our members on our website and on our various social media accounts including on TwitterFacebookLinkedIn, and Instagram.

If you have any comments or feedback on the campaign, please feel free to reach out to Sylvia Gimenez at or Libby Miller at
