Why Your Support is Needed
PHAR has consistently been a voice for residents of public housing and low-income people in our community. Through community organizing, our internship program, services coordination, and individual advocacy PHAR has improved the lives of thousands of residents by educating residents about their rights, giving resident input into decision making, supporting resident desires, addressing resident concerns, and standing up for low-income people in Charlottesville and nationwide.
PHAR relies on a small, hardworking, staff to bring about change in the community and public housing neighborhoods. PHAR relies on donors like you to help fund our organization as we stand up and speak out for a better life for all people. This year will see many changes to public housing and the re-starting of much needed redevelopment of public housing in Charlottesville. PHAR feels that residents should have a say in the future of their communities and redevlopment. Help PHAR to make sure that residents are at the table and that decision makers will abide by the Residents’ Bill of Rights for Redevelopment by making your donation on May 6th!
