    Mission

    Our mission is to increase the Obtainable employment and contracting opportunities generated by two broad categories of the U.S. Department HUD. To empower our residents to understand J-RAB's mission of protecting and advocating for the concerns/issues of all residents with knowledge, patience, and supportive approaches when dealing with CMHA resident focused policies. J-RAB's Vision is to also collectively protect tenants rights with a no-nonsense approach while promoting self-determination to resolve any issues and to also encourage a sense of humor as we strive to bring a smile to each resident's face with every interaction.

    A monthly meeting is held on the 3rd Monday of each month (usually at the J-RAB Office located in the San Marco building) and attended by the President and Vice President of your Resident Council.
