Public Housing Resident Services


PMHA's Resident Services Department connects low- to moderate-income Public Housing residents with referrals and supportive services in partnership with the local community, to encourage individuals and families to reach their full potential. The Resident Services Department strives to assist participants to make progress toward economic and housing self-sufficiency, by linking them to the services that enable them to increase earned income, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, and make progress toward achieving economic independence. For elderly and disabled residents, the Resident Services Department links participants to supportive services which enable them to age/remain in-place, living independently and with improved quality of life, thereby avoiding more costly forms of care.

Section 3 Employment

PMHA is creating a pool of qualified Section 3 residents with job skills in various fields, for contractors to view, interview and possibly hire as subcontractors when additional workforce is necessary. PMHA is also interested in creating a listing of Section 3 resident-owned businesses for contracting. These individuals and businesses would need the necessary working skills and/or the ability to perform job duties required, in order to be considered for hire or selection. Section 3 resident-owned businesses must have insurance and bonding as required, for each job.

Examples of work that may be available for Section 3 residents for subcontracting, or for Section 3 resident-owned business, include: painting, building renovation work, general labor, janitorial services and cleaning.

If you are interested in being part of the pool of Section 3 residents with qualified job skills for contractors to view and interview for hire, or if you wish to be added to the list of Section 3 resident-owned businesses, please contact Wes Ransom at 330-297-1489 ext. 222 or by email.
