Residents at Richardson Dwellings had the ability to engage with multiple community and government agencies at a recent Community Resource Fair.

The fair, held January 30, was hosted by the District of Columbia Housing Authority and the mayor’s new Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement. The organizations were on hand to answer questions and inform resident of different local resources that are available to them and their families.

In addition to DCHA, several local organizations had booths including the Sasha Bruce Youth Network, Homes for Hope, Department of Behavioral Health, City Gate, East of the River Family Strengthening Collaborative, Office of the Student Advocate, Child and Family Services Agency, Office of the Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services, Department of Employment Services, and more.

If DCHA customers missed the resource fair, they can still check out opportunities on DCHA’s website, BenefitsGPS. The online tool has expanded customer access through the Customer Call Center or a customer service representative in the DCHA office lobby. Benefits GPS is a one-stop, online service where customers can access and explore all types of benefits and assistance programs including employment, training, healthcare, education, social services, and other programs for themselves and their families.
