In response to COVID-19, the Lawrence Housing Authority offices are closed to the public until further notice.
Even though our offices are closed to the public, our employees are coming to work to ensure continuity of services to our residents and program participants.
If you are reporting a change, you can either email, mail, or fax the information to your assigned caseworker or site manager. As correspondence is received, we will do our best to answer as soon as possible.
We have installed cameras outside our staffed office sites with motion sensors and the ability to directly communicate with you. There are also “drop boxes” installed to allow you to leave any documents without direct contact. Please note that these boxes are checked periodically during the day—NOT at night.
For any and all maintenance-related calls to our offices or answering service, we will be responding ONLY to emergencies until further notice.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, as we all try to remain safe and healthy.
In collaboration with the City of Lawrence Council on Aging & Senior Center, we were able to provided food to our residents living in our elderly/disabled developments.
Through our assistance of Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) and the Massachusetts National Guard we were able to secure Personal Protective Equipment (face masks, disinfectant wipes, and hand sanitizer), which were distributed for the 4th time to every single resident of the Lawrence Housing Authority (LHA) in our elderly/disabled & family developments.
Through the partnership with the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center (GLFHC), the LHA hosted several on-site vaccination clinics at our elderly/disable & family developments
LHA also collaborated with the City of Lawrence and the Lawrence General Hospital to provide on-site COVID-19 testing using the city’s mobile testing unit.
