Cookeville Housing Authority Changing Its Name

COOKEVILLE - Cookeville Housing Authority (CHA), founded in 1952 to provide safe, decent and affordable housing for Cookeville-area residents, has changed its name to Highlands Residential Services. The agency will have a new logo, signage and a new and improved website,

Cookeville Housing Authority has grown in its nearly 60 years to offer a much wider variety of community-building services including job and skills training courses for adults, home-buyer classes in partnership with various local banks, quality childcare and events for children and adolescents, mentoring programs for elderly and disabled residents, block parties and other recreational and social activities for residents, and much more. 

And while the organization originally served only Cookeville, it now supports and strengthens the residents of Algood, Baxter, Celina, Cookeville, Gainesboro and Monterey, which means that its reach extends across the Tennessee Highlands.

"Cookeville Housing Authority is more than just housing. We are building on community to make our neighborhoods, towns and our region stronger, and our new name and image will reflect that," said C. Dow Harris, CHA executive director.
