Welcome to the Rochester Housing Authority’s Resident Services Web Page. 

We are continuously researching programs, services and events for the benefit of RHA’s Public Housing residents and Section 8 tenants. From GED preparation to financial literacy, from summer camp for resident youth to job readiness, and homeownership counseling and preparation, our goal is to provide a full range of services that decreases the dependency on government-assisted programs and improve the quality of life through self-sufficiency and economic independence.

We accomplish this by providing employment training and related services, education, timely information, mentoring, supportive services and by advocating and networking on behalf of our Public Housing residents and Section 8 tenants.

The Resident Services Department also coordinates Section 3 training sessions for our Public Housing Residents and Section 8 Participants. If you are interested in more information click on the link below:
