My desire as the Chairman of the Board of Directors is to ensure that our agencies mission and agency goals are accomplished. Our primary focus in the up coming FY year 2014 will be to improve residential services, to strengthen our community partnerships and develop new partnerships. 

The Board of Directors have committed to HUD, the Housing Commission and most importantly the residents to make sure that all areas of policies, procedures, regulations and legislation, implemented locally, state and on the federal levels will be followed. As we continue to strive for excellence in day to day operations the decisions made will reflect excellence in service for our residents, future residents and the community in which we serve. Although Benton Harbor Housing Commission has been deemed troubled by HUD working with our Recovery Team to address all areas of concern will allow our agency the access and autonomy to reach our goal of becoming a premier agency in the 21st Century.

HOPE VI HOMES 
 
New homes come to Benton Harbor, Michigan. The Benton Harbor Housing Commission received a revitalization grant in 2004. This grant came as a result of recommendations by National Commission on Severely Distressed Public Housing through the Hope VI Program. Hope VI is a national initiative designed to eliminate severely distressed public housing. Construction of 70 three and four bedrooms homes (30/3bdr, 34/4bdr, and 6 stick build homes) began in the later part of August 2005. The homes are situated predominately in the southwest section of Benton Harbor. All applications for occupancy are processed through Keystone Management Company with preference being given to original Whitfield I residents. Whitfield I residents have preferential treatment because they are residents that were displaced from Whitfield I apartments due to the demolition of that complex.
