					Celebrating a place called home.

            For sixty-five years, the Housing Authority
            of the City of Austin (HACA) has provided
            sufficient housing to low-income Austinites.
            It has taken people out of substandard
            residences and placed them into modest,
            affordable and safe homes, and it has served
            people in ways that lift them out of poverty
            and add dignity to their lives.

                        Home. It’s more than just an address.
                                 It’s a place in the heart.
                A place to raise a family, rest from the rigors of work,
                       and enjoy the companionship of friends.

            In meeting this fundamental need, HACA
            led the way among housing authorities
            across the United States. Soon after the U.S.
            Congress passed the Housing Act of 1937,
            which provides federal assistance to local
            public housing authorities, HACA became
            the first housing authority in the nation to
            begin constructing a housing neighborhood.
            People began moving into that community,
            Santa Rita Courts, in 1939.

            Today, HACA has grown to 19 communities
            with 1,928 units, 22 single-family home
            sites and a Section 8 program that subsidizes
            housing for over 4,500 low-income individ-
            uals and families. From the Depression to
            the Information Age, HACA has given those
            in need a place to come home to that’s more
            than just an address.

                                          and volunteer efforts. The Employee of the Year
                                          is selected from the four Employees of the Quarter
                                          and is voted on by the entire agency.

                                          The Employee Fund supports a variety of
                                          recreational activities for staff. This year the
                                          funds allowed employees to enjoy a family picnic
                                          and barbeque at Emma Long Park, a Thanksgiving
                                          Dinner, and a holiday cocktail party at the Copper
                                          Tank. These activities help unify a constantly
                                          growing staff by bringing them together to socialize
                                          in a relaxed, non-work environment.
