Partnering with The Housing Authority: Read about the Partnership between The Housing Authority of the County of Beaver and Aliquippa Impact
Having partnered with Aliquippa Impact (AI) for nearly a decade, Brian Yaworksy from the Housing Authority of the County of Beaver explained the importance of this partnership. Yaworsky is the deputy executive director of the Housing Authority.
Their mission, according to Yaworksy is “to assist low income families with safe, decent and affordable housing opportunities as they strive to achieve self-sufficiency and improve the quality of their lives.” Their connection with AI is due to the use of the Linmar Terrace Community Center for summer camp.
“The Housing Authority enthusiastically supports Aliquippa Impact and their mission, which clearly is demonstrated in their commitment and passion in serving the residents of Linmar Terrace,” said Yaworsky. He explained that AI has filled a void within the community. According to Yaworksy, throughout the 90’s a government run program called DARE2XL was offered amongst the community. Sometime later, however, the program was discontinued due to government funding. Since that time AI has replaced this program.
