The Office of the Canton Housing Authority

The office of the Canton Housing Authority is located in the Diane P. Burns building at 37 Riverside Drive. This is a secure site, so when you enter our new foyer you will discover an entry call station.  Follow the posted instructions to use the system.

In our office, you will find our Executive Director, Bernard Wells. Mr. Wells became director of this Authority in August 2009 and comes to us with a wealth of housing knowledge drawn from years of experience working in the same capacity at Poughkeepsie Housing Authority.

Operating under the guidance of our Executive Director, the office staff includes Executive Assistant Cindy Moore,  and Certified Occupancy Specialists Cheryl Murdock and Amanda St. Marie. Each of our friendly and experienced staff is well versed in the rules and regulations of Federal Public Housing, established HUD guidelines, and the policies & procedures of this agency.
