Neighborhood Networks Program
Houston Housing Resource, Inc. was awarded funds from the
Neighborhood Networks Grant. The purpose of the Public Housing

housing residents achieve long-term economic self-sufficiency. The
Housing Authority will be expanding services in the areas of
computer training, résumé writing classes, access to the Internet
to enhance job searches, job-readiness workshops, workplace
relationships workshops, post-employment assistance, and life
skills training. To complete pre-registration for this program,
