Building Neighborhoods. Growing Dreams.

Message from the Executive Director of the Syracuse Housing Authority, William J. Simmons.

I want to personally welcome you to the Syracuse Housing Authority, a dynamic force in the city of Syracuse, New York. We own or manage fifteen residential developments in the city, with more than 2,500 apartments. We provide not only a great place to make your home, but a great place to work and do business. We are a strong force working to reshape the city of Syracuse in a positive way and develop a better future for the people of Central New York. When you look at the details, you will see that we are efficient in our goals: providing safe homes and communities; providing good options for the kind of apartment or house people can call home; caring for and developing neighborhoods that have community centers, parks, gardens, trees, and attractive buildings. Most importantly, we are a community of people actively seeking to improve the lives of everyone we meet. We provide self-sufficiency programs and encourage individual growth among every age group and socio-economic class.  We are glad you have chosen to be part of our efforts and our vision.  If you have any questions about the East Adams Street Neighborhood Redevelopment check out our East Adams page.
