Success Lives Here!
Success Lives Here!Have you, your children or a member of your household achieved a milestone that you would like to share with us? If so, we are interested in learning more about the successes of our families that we may be able to use in publications, testimonials, or for follow up stories. Some examples of successes would include: you or your child graduating high school or beginning to attend college, sporting event achievements, making the honor role, getting an excellent job, becoming a homeowner, or significantly improving your credit score. The best stories may result in the creation of short videos and or articles that we would include in HADC's newsletters or other media.

  1. Missing outlets and switch covers
  2. Missing door knobs
  3. Wall/door/cabinet damage – holes, missing hardware, graffiti
  4. Housekeeping – carpet cleaning, floor cleaning, stove cleaning
  5. Broken windows
  6. Smoke detector batteries
