A Message from the President & CEO

Ever since its establishment in 1933, Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) has strived to maintain high ethical standards, create housing opportunities and resident services that provide value to the quality of life in the communities we serve. LMHA has become a trusted community partner, solidifying its position as the premier partner in creating communities of choice in the Greater Toledo Area.

I am honored for the opportunity to lead the Agency to its next level of excellence. Excellence will be achieved through partnerships and the collaboration of exceptional employees, the leaders of today, who are committed to working with me for the communities of tomorrow.

It is critical to develop effective partnerships in order to be successful in the implementation of new rules and programs to improve the quality of life of the people we serve. I am focused on ensuring the commitment and participation from our local community leaders, governmental and elected officials to define the strategic mutual vision of success for every party involved. Furthermore, agreeing on what success looks like by leveraging each other's strengths will lay the groundwork to long lasting partnerships.

Executive engagement is crucial. Under my leadership, the goal is to establish a solid foundation in which we can harness alternative sources of revenue, including private investment.

LMHA now LMH (Lucas Metropolitan Housing) is leading the path forward in providing access to new and better affordable housing solutions for the families with scarce resources. There is a direct proportional urgency in creating effective partnerships with our residents, to promote their participation and engagement as we develop the new initiatives. Through open communication and understanding their needs we can effectively maximize our resources while we build on trust, confidence, and credibility. 

At LMH, we are the leaders of today, working hand in hand to achieve our strategic plan objectives and goals that are relevant to transforming Public Housing into the communities of tomorrow.
