Cheryl is the Executive Director of the St. Louis Housing Authority. The Authority owns low income public housing units housing thousands of very low income people. They also administer the Section 8 Choice Voucher Program which issues Section 8 vouchers for very low income people housed in private housing.
The Authority under Cheryl’s leadership has done a great job. They have substantially improved the buildings though extensive use of capital funds, successfully administered the voucher program, and is almost 100% leased up. The Authority has extensive social service programs to assist tenants in leaving poverty.
The housing authority was troubled when Cheryl took over, in the newspapers often with negative stories. None of that has gone on in the 19 years of her leadership. Great job! Written by Paul Dribin
