CHAIRMAN AND SECRETARY REPORT
Secretary Pegg reported that she, Vickie Rhodes, and Jon Dieter attended the Veterans Housing Summit in SeaTac on June 2, 2010 with a large gathering of people from a broad cross section of the state. The people that attended were broken up into four different work groups with a goal of finding what issues veterans were facing, what services were needed and what types of funding is available. The federal goal is to end homelessness among veterans within five years.
Secretary Pegg reported that our agency has been selected to participate in AmeriCorps program and that Gary Gray will be working with us on Veterans services again. We will also be contracting for a second person to continue doing Veterans outreach to a larger geographical area.
Secretary Pegg reported that Longview Housing Authority has received official word that we have been awarded funds to support HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing Initiative. The funding will provide housing for 25 veterans.
Secretary Pegg reported that the grand opening for both Pacific Pearl in South Bend and Reliable Place in Centralia were well attended and went off without a hitch.
Secretary Pegg reported that we are nearly full at Phoenix House and should be full by July.
Secretary Pegg reported that Vickie Rhodes will be submitting a grant application for additional vouchers for non-elderly, disabled persons. LHA will be applying for 100 vouchers.
Secretary Pegg reported that no qualified applicants applied for the property management position at Pacific Pearl so the job will remain open until a qualified person applies and is hired.
