The Lamar Housing Authority Mission:

To provide decent, safe, and affordable housing to low income, elderly, handicapped, and/or disabled persons in Lamar and the surrounding counties. To advocate for the needs required by those persons stated above in order to maintain their quest for a suitable living environment, free from discrimination, as long as it is their choice and is medically and economically feasible.

To improve the overall housing quality standards of existing housing in Lamar and surrounding counties.

To advocate for and assist in providing decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable existing housing for low income families in Lamar and the surrounding counties, advocating that these families need a support system to encourage self-sufficiency and continuing education in order to reach an income earning capacity that no longer requires subsidized housing for them, and to learn that subsidized housing for families is not a way of life but temporary assistance when needed.
