Dothan Housing to Hold Homeownership Workshop

Homeownership workshop for the month of June.

June is Homeownership Month

Dothan Housing to Hold Homeownership Workshop

Dothan, Ala.--- Across the nation, housing agencies and REALTORS® will be celebrating homeownership month throughout June. Dothan Housing (DH) is no exception, as the affordable housing agency is preparing to host its Homeownership Workshop. The workshop will occur in the Samuel P. Crawford Village (formerly Henry Green) Community Room with guest speakers Nakeesha Lawton, REALTOR®, Lily Mendoza, REALTOR® or Dothan Housing Commissioner, and Dr. Michael C. Threatt, COO of Dothan Housing. 


Residents and the public are welcome to attend on Wednesday, June 14, 2023, from 1:30 PM-3:30 PM to learn more about the avenues for homeownership from industry professionals. DH offers a route for Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP), formerly known as Section 8, to use their voucher to purchase a home.


"The HCV Homeownership program is often underutilized due to a lack of awareness, so we are excited to join countless public housing authorities (PHA) across the country in promoting the program during Homeownership Month," says Dr. Michael C. Threatt, COO of Dothan Housing.


Every PHA does not offer a homeownership program. According to HUD, the PHA can provide the program for its community if it chooses. Dothan Housing is proud to be one of the participating PHAs and looks forward to solid implementation. As a member of the top 4% of performing PHAs in the nation, indicated by its Moving To Work (MTW) designation (Cohort 3 Landlord Incentives), DH has the unique opportunity to be an innovation lab for affordable housing nationwide. Offering workshops and collaborative events like the Homeownership Workshop is a testament to the agency's modern methodology.


"Families should understand they have choice despite socioeconomic status, and we are proud to be a beacon for true housing choice here at DH," states Dr. Tamara Berry-Andrews, agency CHO.
