Resident Service Programs


Resident Councils

The role of a Resident Council (RC) is to improve the quality of life and resident satisfaction in self-help initiatives to enable residents to create a positive living environment for individuals and families living public housing. Resident Councils actively participate and are formally recognized through an executed Memorandum of Understanding with the Los Angeles County Development Authority(LACDA). The RC membership consists of a democratically governing board elected by the voting membership. RC's serve as the voice of the housing communities that elect them. They have their individual priority programs and goals depending upon the demographics, needs, and aspirations of their communities.

Resident Council Forums

The LACDA  holds a quarterly gathering of RC Board members and provides workshops on varying topics throughout the year which may include: policies, community resources, how to run an effective meeting, safety issues, and the budgeting process.

These meetings are held quarterly on the 2nd Tuesday of the following months: January, April, July, and October.


“It has been such a tremendous, wonderful, amazing experience working with residents. I enjoy working with people and especially happy people! For me, I feel like of course we have obstacles, but an obstacle is just a stepping stone for bigger and greater things.”
