With housing as a base, the BHA Resident Services Program (RSP) promotes well-being and opportunity for residents of all ages, abilities, languages and backgrounds. In collaboration with our partners, the BHA programs seeks to reduce barriers so that every resident is connected with the resources and supportive relationships to maintain healthy, stable tenancies and to participate fully in the Brookline community. Services include:
- Care coordination and community activities at properties for BHA seniors and persons with disabilities (in partnership with Springwell)
- Service coordination for residents of BHA family properties (in partnership with the Brookline Center for Community Mental Health)
- Self Sufficiency Program for adult residents of state family developments (Egmont, Trustman, and High St. Veterans)
- Other resources and programming as updated on BHA website, community areas, and resident newsletters
