ABOUT RESIDENT SERVICES
The Goldsboro Housing Authority Resident Services Department works in conjunction with The ROSS program to provide residents with the tools needed to become self-sufficient. Resident Services works to promote self-sufficiency by creating positive relationships between the residents of the Goldsboro Housing Authority and local community resources by associating family-fun activities with educational opportunities. Community partners offer programs and services on and off-site to help residents develop skills that will prepare them for economic independence. Services are available through referrals for any resident living in any Goldsboro Housing Authority housing development. Those services range from job training, health, and financial literacy, youth, and adult education to homeownership.
