Home Matters Awareness Luncheon

Please join us in listening to Paul J Long. Paul has challenged the traditional corporate landscape in sales and service beginning in 2004. He has leveraged this experience and his ability to connect with others for the last decade to engage audiences around the globe. With his fun-loving attitude, infectious spirit and philosophy of “fundamism,” Paul has provided memorable experiences for countless engagements including but not limited to workshops, trade shows, keynotes and more. His shenanigans have been featured in media outlets like ESPN, the Washington Post and even the Wall Street Journal! Years ago, while working for a conservative call center in the highly conservative industry of insurance, Paul had a conversation with a manager and several other employees. “Are you always this upbeat and optimistic?” asked one of the call center employees. “Give it time,” retorted the manager, “this place will get to him.” From that day forth Paul decided not to allow experiences to shape others but rather motivate and engage others to create memorable experiences for themselves.
As a public housing authority, all THA has to do is provide safe, decent, affordable housing and be a landlord. Part of THA’s mission is to successfully provide housing and that success takes many different initiatives, such as the Pine Ridge Partnership. The Pine Ridge Partnership includes Parents As Teachers, Pine Ridge Prep, E3 Aquaponics, Pine Ridge Family Health Center and the Born Learning Trail and Park. This is an innovative collaboration of partners committed to creating access to high-quality education, healthcare and empowerment resources. All sponsorships and donations will go to support the Pine Ridge Partnership.
Topeka Housing Authority’s mission is to successfully provide accessible, affordable housing. Success is defined as 1. putting applicants, residents, and participants first; 2. market competitiveness; and 3. fiscal strength and integrity.
THA has served the Topeka Community for over 50 years. We assist over 4000 people every night with their housing needs. Between all our programs, 51% of the people we serve are youth under age 17 years old and 89% of the individuals are working, elderly or disabled.
We are a quasi-governmental entity and 100% of our funding is through the federal government. The fundraising picture is uncertain at best and we need your help to continue providing the services that are so desperately needed in our community.
