A Message from the President/CEO

Derwin Jackson

I am proud to serve as the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Franklin Housing Authority. In this role, I am committed to keep the organization focused on our mission: to provide affordable, safe housing to those in need and serve as a conduit within the community, connecting our residents with our partnership network to offer programs that foster empowerment, vision, economic and personal growth of our residents.

While carrying out our purpose, we are also fully engaged in a plan to revitalize the FHA community. This plan, which will continue over the next few years, will enable us to build more than 300 new housing units with updated features needed by our residents. We can move forward with this objective because of support from and our partnerships within the community and a dedicated team on staff at FHA.

As we move forward, every decision we make will be done so with great care and in keeping the priorities of our residents and the community top-of-mind. I am excited to have the opportunity to transition FHA to become an invigorated community focused on the future of our residents.

You are welcome to visit us here on our Web site to learn more about our mission. You will see the faces of some of our residents and the spirit of community in our residents' corner and can learn more about housing including our guidelines and policies as well. You are also welcome to visit us in person to meet FHA face-to-face and find out how you can be a part of our community, as a volunteer or resident.
