Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority (GMHA) prides itself on the quality housing that it provides. Family units are dispersed throughout in Greene County, which makes the residents feel like a part of the community, and not targeted as low-income households.

GMHA owns 361 public housing units in five communities in Greene County. GMHA offers 24-hour maintenance to both family and elderly units. Residents on GMHA's Low Rent Program benefit from a number of programs and services.

Families are encouraged to participate in the Resident Initiatives Program. This program provides on-the-job training so that residents can learn a new skill. The benefit of this program is that the income that is received is not counted toward rent. This gives residents an opportunity to save money.

Residents are also encouraged to participate in the Individual Development Account Savings program. This three-year program allows families to save toward the purchase of a new home, secondary education, or to start a business. GMHA, through partnerships with Greene County Job & Family Services and local banks, matches 2:1 every dollar saved up to $50.00!!

GMHA has a full-time Social Worker on staff that conducts a move-in meeting after a family or elderly resident is housed. The Social Worker works closely with new residents to ensure that they have a full understanding of GMHA's polices and services.

The Social Worker is also available to all GMHA residents to assist with resolving
problems as well as to promote self-sufficiency. The Social Worker serves as an advocate for residents who need assistance. They provide support and encouragement for residents who need assistance with accomplishing their goals.

GMHA is committed to providing a safe environment for its residents. Staff meets with the Xenia City Police on a monthly basis to walk the East End area neighborhood. This lets residents know that GMHA has a strong and committed presence in their community. The local police department also uses a GMHA unit as a police sub-station in Xenia.

All elderly sites have a designated resident to assist them if there is trouble with their unit. One complex has a common entrance with an intercom system. Other complexes have neighborhood watch programs and meet regularly with the local police department.

A Resident Advisory Board is available for both families and elderly residents. Representatives from each area of Greene County meet to discuss policy changes, upcoming improvements, activities and other items pertaining to their housing.
