Sherman Housing Authority
The Housing Authority of Sherman aims to ensure safe, decent, and affordable public housing for seniors and low-income families; create opportunities for residents’ self-sufficiency and economic independence; and assure fiscal integrity by all program participants.
The Housing Authority of Sherman was created by state statute and declared necessary for the City of Sherman by a resolution adopted on February 3, 1966. The public housing units became available for occupancy on July 31, 1970.
In order to provide safe, decent, and sanitary low-income and senior housing, the Housing Authority operates 298 public housing units in developments across the city – 190 for the elderly/disabled residents, 93 for families, and 15 for physically disabled residents. Fifteen apartments are especially designed for the physically disabled, including wider doorways, larger bathrooms, wheelchair ramps and handrails, and lower kitchen cabinets. These accessible apartments are available in the 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom sizes. Others are available in efficiency through 4-bedroom sizes.
The goals of the Housing Authority of Sherman include increasing the availability of decent, safe, and affordable housing in the community; ensure equal opportunity in housing for seniors and low-income families; promote self-sufficiency and asset development of families and individuals; and improve community quality of life and economic viability.
Our mission is to ensure safe, decent, and affordable housing; create opportunities for residents’ self-sufficiency and economic independence; and assure fiscal integrity by all program participants.
