Resident Services

CMHA partners with various community agencies and non-profit organizations to provide programs and activities to help resident youth, adults and seniors achieve goals. Residents have access to and can participate in programs such as career development, youth and adult education, job training, health and wellness, and financial literacy. These programs are designed to help residents develop skills and secure tools that will enhance professional development, academic achievement, financial stability and quality of life. The four community centers located at Lakeview Terrace, Outhwaite Homes, Riverside Park and Woodhill Homes Estates are the venues for many of these programs.

Residents have access to and can receive assistance with:

  • General Educational Development (GED)
  • Adult Basic and Literary Education (ABLE)
  • Resume Building
  • Employment Training and Assistance
  • Scholarship Information
  • Career Planning
  • Financial Literacy
  • Home Ownership
  • Health and Wellness

CMHA also offers self-sufficiency initiatives in both Low Income Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher Programs. Self-sufficiency coordinators and case managers provide case management and supportive services to help residents eliminate barriers that may prevent them from achieving goals.
