At RHA, we believe that health and housing go hand-in-hand. For this reason, the agency provides, supports, or otherwise coordinates a host of on-site Wellness Services. In general, the goal of these programs are to help residents maintain stability in their housing environment by staying well, by having access to mainstream health services, by accessing resources that enhance overall wellness like exercise and nutrition, and by having the knowledge that helps people to make good choices so that they may better control their own wellness goals.
No one should every go hungry! Agency residents are encouraged to contact the Resident Services Department if you need food. Residents may also contact the Greater Berks Food Bank (GBFB) directly: http://berksfoodbank.org/food-assistance/. As part of the wellness initiatives, RHA participates in the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). Through CSFP and the Department of Agriculture, nutritious foods are delivered to residents age 60 and older in the agency’s highrises. Seasonal fruits and vegetables are also delivered through the GBFB to all RHA public housing sites.
