Welcome to the Saginaw Housing Commission
The Saginaw Housing Commission (SHC) was established in July 1947 by the Saginaw City Council as a public corporation under the State of Michigan's Public Act 18. SHC provides low-income Public Housing within the City of Saginaw and administers Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8) within Saginaw County. In addition, we offer a Family Self-Sufficiency Program to the particpants of our programs, which assists with setting and achieving personal goals, as well as connecting participants with community resources.

ReThink Housing | Why Housing Matters
Having a place to live is a basic need for everyone. Yet, for some people, it remains out of reach. Public housing serves approximately 2.2 million people across the U.S., but the need is much greater; more than half a million people are on waiting lists.
According to the ReThink Survey: Perceptions of Public Housing 2013, the overwhelming majority of Americans believe U.S. citizens deserve a safe and decent place to live. Yet most Americans surveyed do not support public housing in their own neighborhoods and would not want to live near a public housing unit.
Watch, read, and share the inspirational stories from public housing and rethink its impact on individuals, families, and your own community.
