Hurricane Sandy Update

The Philadelphia Housing Authority will open for business on Wednesday, October 31st.

Message from PHA Interim Executive Director

Dear PHA Employee:

I hope that this e-mail finds you and your families safe.

After the historic mega-hurricane Sandy blew through the City of Philadelphia leaving much destruction in her wake, we at the Philadelphia Housing Authority were blessed that we got through the storm with our residents safe and very little damage to our homes.

I truly believe that the reason we got through the storm so well was due to PHA's emergency responders and essential staff. They performed exceptionally well and ensured that we were able to ride out the storm successfully. The preparation before the storm and the execution of the emergency plan during the hurricane were both phenomenal. I want to personally thank all of you who came in during the storm for your heroic efforts.It was a job well done!

While we continue to assess damage and clean up today, I want to thank Mayor Nutter for his leadership and City workers for their hard work to make sure all our fellow residents of Philadelphia got through the storm.

Stay safe and I will see you all back tomorrow.

Kindest regards,

Kelvin A. Jeremiah, MA, MPA, PHM, CPPO
Interim Executive Director
Philadelphia Housing Authority
