A Message from Your Executive Director
Thomaston Housing Authority Executive Director addresses COVID-19 Crisis
The City of Thomaston Public Housing Authority (PHA) is working hard caring about its residents and families in this time of a national health crisis. The PHA is still open for business. We are housing people in need; and assisting families with resources. The PHA is closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation regarding the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In recent days, the World Health Organization designated COVID-19 as a pandemic, a national emergency has been declared by President Trump, Governor Kemp declared a peacetime state of emergency, and City Mayor Stalling has addressed the city and continues to closely monitor the crisis. The health and safety of the approximately 800 individuals that the THA houses and serves on a daily basis, as well as our 12 employees and their families, is our highest priority. The PHA is actively engaged with the City of Thomaston, Upson County School System, Upson County Public Health, as well as following guidance from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
I urge residents to take the necessary precautions to lessen the potential exposure of the Corona virus. The Thomaston Housing Authority staff continues to work diligently to assess the crisis and the affect on the communities in order to provide assistance and resources.
Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, the THA main office and community centers are closed to the general public. All scheduled activities have been cancelled. However, staff will be available to assist you with your housing needs via phone, email, or social media. The maintenance department will only take "true emergency work orders" until further notice.
Please know that it is our intention to continue to provide you and your family with quality service; and hope that this crisis is short lived. In the meantime, practice patience; and above all, health and safety behavior.
If you have questions or concerns, you may contact our office at 706-647-7420 or email us.
Health and Wellness,
Patricia A. Allen
