Info for Residents

Community Service:  

Persons less than 62  years of age, that are not disabled or the caretaker of a disabled  person, that are not working 20 hours or more per week, are required to  contribute 8 hours per month of community service (volunteer work) or  participate in 8 hours of training or other activities which help an  individual toward self-sufficiency and economic independence. Hours  should be turned in to Sonia at the MHA office on a monthly basis.   Falling behind on your community service can result in your lease not  being renewed. Volunteer opportunities are posted on the bulletin board  at the Monahans Adult Probation Office.
