THS National Films Presents: An Oak Hill Christmas
Apartment’s on-site staff are on the front lines of America’s communities; in some cases, more intimate in the lives of residents than a pastor or counselor.
It takes more than a property manager to build a sense of community. Making individuals feel a part of the collective group is our highest calling – For on-site staff it requires a caring style and supportive demeanor. Someone who understands the human element which plays out among each family each day.
We heard about Oak Hill from the local THS staff who met the Oak Hill team while putting together a renovation project. There was something different in the air. Kids bombarded Celena with hugs as they walked home from the bus stop, neighbors stopped to give updates about their kids and family. It was obvious, Celena and her staff are viewed as friends and mentors-a part of everyone’s life.
We believe this simple outlook on community is what is necessary to make positive change in our country. We hope creating this film will encourage others to consider what they can do to build a sense of community among their residents.
