Greene Metro Housing

Greene Metropolitan Housing Authority provides on-the-job training for Low Rent tenants through our Resident Initiatives Program.

workplace trainingThis program is designed to assist residents with learning new skills which will broaden their marketability in the job market. Training opportunities range from maintenance/grounds work to office/clerical work. Residents who are hired under this program can work up to 18 months. During that time, their income is not counted toward their rent.

During the first phase of their training period, GMHA's Social Worker coordinates with residents to:

  • Establish goals
  • Refer them for training that is appropriate for their position i.e.) Computer classes, office organization
  • Meet with their direct supervisor to review goals and training expectations
  • Enroll them in IDA Savings Program

During the second phase of the training period, GMHA's Social Worker prepares the resident to enter the job market by:

  • Completing a Career Assessment
  • Referral for interview clothing
  • Development of Resume
  • Reassesses goals
  • Job Search, Application Submission, Cover Letter Preparation
