To fulfill a key aspect of the Choice Neighborhoods grant, the Housing Authority of Winston-Salem is assisting Urban Strategies Inc. in its search for a senior project manager who will oversee the resident-services provisions of the grant.

Urban Strategies has been retained by the housing authority to assist residents with the transitions that will come as the grant is implemented. Services could include assistance with relocation information, registering for school, job counseling, training, financial empowerment, health and wellness, senior services, programs for children and youth, homeownership preparation and more.
