The Mission of the McKinney Housing Authority is to service the Housing Needs of Low to Moderate Income Families in the Authority’s Jurisdiction in order to Enhance Self Sufficiency and Promote Community Quality of Life and Economic Viability. With that in mind, the McKinney Housing Authority has joined the President and the Department of Housing & Urban Development in its National Father’s Day Initiative.
HUD is gearing up for Father’s Day’s 2013 and registration is now open for the 3rd annual event. Father’s Day 2013 is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development initiative that aims to strengthen the bond between children and their fathers, who are often absent from the lives of their children who live in public housing. Concurrently, the initiative has the goal of connecting dads to supportive services in their communities including, job training, health screenings and education opportunities. For the past three years HUD has asked Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) across the U.S. to host an event on the Saturday before Father's Day in June that achieves these goals. This year, the date is Saturday, June 15, but housing authorizes should feel free to be flexible with the date of their events. This is an opportunity to empower families —fathers, children and mothers — while also connecting Dad's with economic, employment, health and education resources.

The McKinney Housing Authority and Resident Council will host its celebration of Father’s on June 15, 2013 from 10am-1pm.
We invite you to join us in our efforts to reunite fathers with their children. There will be fun and entertainment for the attendees to enjoy.
