Diverse and Individualized Services

As a major provider of affordable housing and assistance, The Family Company recognizes the importance of resident involvement in community issues.

For this reason, we provide several programs to help educate and empower residents to improve not only their own living situations, but those of the entire community.

Resident Councils+

Need to be heard regarding your housing issues? Have some ideas on how to improve your neighborhood?

We empower residents through leadership development. Our seminars bring together active members of the community to develop organizational skills and grassroots techniques needed to mobilize others.

During our bi-weekly meetings, our members discuss particular property issues, beautification projects and community involvement projects. We also hold regular social events such as BBQs, brunches and an annual member dance.

To become involved in your community, contact us directly for more information about our resident councils.
