HACY In the News
On Thursday, September 18, 2008 the Housing Authority City of Yuma received the HUD Phoenix Field Office’s Most Valuable Partner (MVP) Award, for supporting HUD’s initiative of Increasing Homeownership Opportunities.  This award is said to recognize HACY’s solid commitment of promoting collaboration between local and community agencies to develop strategies which help Public Housing families obtain affordable housing.  Since 2004 the HACY FSS Program staff, lead by Sandra Nunez – FSS Program Manager, has assisted approximately 50 families in the City of Yuma and Yuma County obtain affordable homeownership opportunities.  HACY believes wholeheartedly in the concept that a change in the context of people’s lives can improve the quality of their life and promote family self-sufficiency.
Before
After
On May 12, 2009 the Housing Authority of the City of Yuma was presented the Clean and Beautiful Commission Award.  This award is presented to those who have noticeably improved or enhanced their properties, created spots of beauty, or have consistently maintained high standards of cleanliness or maintenance.  As you can see in the picture above this home was not a spot of beauty in our community.  After many months of hard work and dedication, this property is now considered a true spot of beauty. 

A special thanks goes out to staff that put in hard work and effort to complete this property.  Pictured above from Left:  Michael Morrissey, Executive Director, Larry Munoz, Maintenance, Cecilio Molina, Maintenance Supervisor.
