Resident Spotlight - Jalisa Henderson

The Mobile Housing Authority is excited to highlight our Public Housing residents and Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) participants that are accomplishing their goals and making a difference in the community. 

It is our honor to introduce you to MHA's first Resident Spotlight: 

Resident Name: Jalisa Henderson 

Address: Orange Grove

Occupation: Licensed Practical Nurse 

Short Term Goal: Continue to be kind to others 

Long Term Goal: Become a Registered Nurse


Jalisa Henderson earned a (LPN) from Coastal Community College in October 2021 and obtained employment at Eight Mile Nursing & Rehabilitation making $20.00 an hour. She also works part-time at Alta Pointe Health. 


Henderson plans to enroll in the Fall of 2022, to obtain her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and fulfill her dream of becoming a Registered Nurse. 


Henderson's passion for healthcare began when she was just a little girl. 


"I want to help people because my grandfather taught me to always care about people no matter what the situation is. My grandfather influenced me in so many different ways with his kind and generous spirit. I love helping people. That's what made me want to be a nurse," said Henderson. 


She likes to go shopping and do puzzles for fun. Her favorite color is white and she has two brothers.


How has the Mobile Housing Authority played a role in her life?


"It has helped me by giving me housing based on my income which helped me in school. I had more time to study and pass nursing school," said Henderson. 


Congratulations Jalisa Henderson for being the Mobile Housing Authority's June Resident Spotlight! 

We are proud of you. Continue to strive forward in life and make a difference.
