Resident Services


The Resident Services Department provides leadership and program support for Covington Public Housing programs. The Resident Services Department is funded through both federal and private grants. Federal funds are primarily channeled through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to the Housing Authority of Covington. Private funds are channeled through our sister non-profit 501c3 organization, The Advance Network, Inc.

The mission of the Resident Services Department is to break the cycle of generational poverty and foster economic self-sufficiency among residents living and/or being served by Covington Public Housing programs.

The objectives of the Resident Services Department are to provide quality programming, as well as resources, to low income families to address the barriers to economic self-sufficiency. Our programs accomplish this through:

Adult Education

  • By targeting high school drop outs with GED preparatory classes;
  • By facilitating post secondary advancement via academic and computer enrichment classes;
  • By promoting employment readiness through classes that promote personal responsibility, and links to job search services;

Youth Programming

  • By offering after-school programs in safe, clean, supervised environments;  
  • By coordinating summer camp programs so youth may experience nature;
  • By fostering work readiness and work experience through summer youth employment programs

Elderly Services

  • By coordinating free congregate meals, as well as educational and recreational opportunities, to low income senior citizens;

Free transportation and support coordination services are available as needed.

The Resident Services Department collaborates with many community organizations to serve our resident population. We sincerely thank all of our partners and their generous support in helping us build a stronger Covington community.
