Resident Advisory Council

The Residents Advisory Council (RAC) serves as the advisory body for all residents living in assisted housing and is composed of all presidents from resident organizations in our communities. This group encourages residents to participate in all aspects of community life and serves as a liaison to CHA staff and Commissioners in keeping them aware of problems, concerns and needs of our residents.

“This program means a lot to me... to me, it’s about making a difference.”
- Donna Green, RAC

The goals of the RAC are:

  • To increase the number of resident organizations in our communities
  • To increase resident involvement in community activities
  • To enhance organization's relationship with our staff and CMPD
  • To create a more family-oriented atmosphere in our communities
  • To create better relationships among residents
  • To host events and programs that will assist residents in becoming more self-sufficient

The RAC members have been instrumental in developing special initiatives for the needs of youth, community-wide celebrations and grant proposals. Our officers have attended numerous workshops and seminars on leadership and building community-based organizations, which allow them to assist with the needs and interests of our residents.
