The Habitat Homeowners’ Association (HOA) was created in 2008 as a forum for HFH/MJ homeowners to address issues of concern within their neighborhoods, work with local government and other organizations and enrich community in the area.
HOA members occupy seven different neighborhoods, and are thus not necessarily “neighbors” in a traditional sense, but share similar neighborhood dynamics, concerns, and hopes. Anyone in the HFH/MJ homeowner family is welcome in the HOA.
The HOA is not a traditional or legal homeowners association- there are no dues or neighborhood rules and charters. Rather, it’s a gathering point for discussion, community and the betterment of local neighborhoods.
Our hope is for the HOA to serve as a meaningful vehicle for both education and empowerment for homeowners. This is accomplished largely through significant homeowner input and by ensuring that speakers and topics at the HOA address pertinent concerns and issues in our neighborhoods.
Past speakers and topics at HOA meetings include:
• Financial planning and credit counseling
• How to prepare a will and testament
• The stimulus plan and how it affects your family
• Home insurance question and answer session
• How to read your insurance debt report
• IRS question and answer session about changes in tax policy and filing
• Insurance information session with local agents on how to get the lowest rates
• Community Leadership Series
• Healthy eating and living with The Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi
