There’s No Place Like Home
The Housing Authority of Glasgow developed the program; “There’s No Place Like Home”, to assist our residents with independent living to avoid pre-mature institutional living. Our program has received National, U.S. Department of HUD, and local awards for enabling our senior and disabled population to experience a “home-like” environment as long as possible.
We employ a full time Service Coordinator who assesses the need(s) of eligible families. This person then acts as a liaison between the family and a service provider that can fulfill the family need(s). We also collaborate with other agencies to plan, organize and provide beneficial programs. These activities include educational, wellness and health screenings, commodities, meal assistance, safety, and socialization.
Families are informed of the schedule of events through our monthly newsletter, Housing Hi-Lites.
There is also a housekeeping assistance component offered to eligible residents to help with difficult chores. This may include chores such as cleaning appliances, washing curtains and windows, dusting ceiling fans, etc... This service can also be utilized when a family has experienced an illness or medical issue that may prevent the temporary completion of basic house cleaning.
For more information on this program, please contact our Service Coordinator at 270 651-3859.
