COVID-19: June 9, 2020 Resident Update

COVID-19:  June 9, 2020 Weekly Update

A home is more than just the place where you live, it’s the entire community; everyone, of all races and backgrounds. Bath Housing is committed to building a strong, diverse community. Racism, discrimination, and hatred have no place in our community or anywhere else for that matter. We stand united with the Black community and in support of equality – and take this responsibility seriously.  Our hope is that one day soon we can all be safe in our homes and communities.
