For many years, the Seattle Housing Authority contracted with Neighborhood House to produce, publish and distribute The Voice to residents of SHA housing. Neighborhood House recently informed SHA that they were restructuring and made the decision not to renew The Voice contract when it expired on June 30, 2018. Neighborhood House ceased publication after the July issue.
SHA is temporarily suspending The Voice for a few months while we gear up to take on production in-house. We plan to create a digital version that will enable interactivity not possible in print, such as easy-to-use direct links to a host of resources related to topics covered in The Voice. An e-newsletter will mean we can reach residents in a more effective and timely way via computers, mobile phones and other devices.
In conjunction with piloting electronic-based distribution of The Voice and other information, SHA is launching an effort to ensure we have up-to-date email addresses and mobile phone numbers so residents don’t miss a single issue of the new combined Voice or other important communications. Please be sure that SHA has your current email address and mobile phone number:
- Please submit updated contact information directly to your building’s property manager. You can do it in person, by writing or calling the property management office, or online.
