#HousersAtWork July Archives
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.
