"The game night hosted by Housing America and NAHRO was a huge hit with the Lakeside residents,” says Eileen Schrandt, director of community development for the Housing Authority of the City of Austin. “From the enthusiasm of the Bingo caller and the wonderful snacks and prizes, to the selfies taken with the volunteers for the resident newsletter, the residents haven't stopped talking about the event and how much fun it was! More than one mentioned how honored they were that important housing advocates wanted to spend their evening in fellowship with them."
NAHRO’s Housing America campaign aims to raise national awareness of the need for and importance of safe, quality, affordable housing through education, advocacy, and empowerment. Some of the many ways in which the campaign moves its mission forward include volunteer events such as this game night.
