We need more housing angels like Pam who will work hard to improve housing authority tenants quality of life. Pam checks up on seniors a few times each week
Greenburgh has snow angels. They help clear driveways of seniors when it snows. We have TV angels who help residents remove TVs from their houses. We have Covid Angels; the Covid angels have helped many seniors get vaccines. Angels are about community - helping their neighbors.
We also have a housing angel. Her name is Pamela Earl and Pam is a real inspiration. She has lived in a Greenburgh Housing Authority site for seven years and for the past six years she has been volunteering her time: She's a volunteer with WESTCOP- their food program and she is a volunteer at Union Baptist Church- helping the church provide food for seniors at the Manhattan Avenue senior site every Thursday and the first Friday of each month.
Housing Angel Pamela Earl has also helped seniors who live at the re-developing Manhattan Avenue site transition to temporary apartments while the new 70 unit affordable housing complex is being built there. To make the process easier she calls the seniors 3 times a week by phone and she also visits with them. Angel Pamela Earl is a problem solver. She makes sure that seniors are happy in their temporary location and she assists with transportation. If they need help, she arranges for extra services and attention to be given to them. She will also assist them when they move back into the newly built senior housing on the Manhattan Avenue site.
This assistance is in addition to the temporary re-location assistance being provided by the Greenburgh Housing Authority to residents throughout the re-development process.
Bishop Wilbert Preston, Chairman of Greenburgh Housing Authority, Councilman - Housing Authority Liaison - Ken Jones, and I, would welcome more housing angels to join Angel Pamela Earl in providing temprorary re-location and food insecurity assistance to residents of the Greenburgh Housing Authority. The goal: to help residents overcome the challenges they may face.
