The Staff of the Monroe Housing Authority operates under the fundamental belief that educational and self-sufficiency opportunities empower families. For this reason, we welcomed the chance to collaborate with Louisiana Delta Community College and Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home. Monroe Housing Authority’s venture into on-site learning centers, which began in a repurposed maintenance shop, has expanded to include two newly constructed Family Learning Centers. Our innovative approach to education has resulted in MHA being the recipient of Louisiana Housing Council’s prestigious Meritorious Accomplishment award. By making education more accessible, Monroe Housing Authority is fulfilling its mission to provide services that improve the quality of life of our residents. At the Monroe Housing Authority we will continue to promote the philosophy that when you educate a mom, you educate a family.
Early Childhood Education
The vision of the project is to increase the literacy rates of young minority children who reside in low-income housing by providing them with sustainable learning programs and a multitude of activities.
