NWGHA    Political Forum

NWGHA is hosting a political forum on October 29, 2015 from 5pm-7pm at the Willingham Gymnasium. Candidates from the upcoming City  Commissioners  election will be present for you to meet and to ask questions. This is a very important election as several candidates are running for only a few spots. Everyone in the community is invited to attend.



In the past few years, NWGHA has progressed into a position of becoming a leader in quality housing.  The following improvements have been made to NWGHA communities. 

  • All NWGHA communities have playgrounds. 
  • Major modernization efforts have been completed in the John Graham Homes, Main High Apartments, Park Homes, Westview and Eastview.
  • Twenty-seven apartments have been newly constructed at the Willingham Village Division Street site.
  • Numerous resident programs are in place to assist our residents. These include ROSS Neighborhood Networks Program, ROSS Elderly and Family Program, Resident Associations, Family Self Sufficiency,The House of the Children Academy, a state of the art licensed early learning center and much more.

Our ultimate goal is to assist residents in making the transition from public housing to home ownership.  Appalachian Housing Counseling Agency is available to assist residents in this process. We urge residents to become familiar with the resources provided by this authority and to call on the staff if assistance is needed. 

We strongly encourage residents to take advantage of these valuable programs and services.
