Housekeeping Training Video "Your Link to Better Living"

The St. Paul PHA's Housekeeping Standards are an important guide for residents and staff on how to maintain dwelling units in good condition. However, inexperience, cultural differences and language barriers sometimes make it difficult for residents to understand and comply with the Housekeeping Standards.

The PHA decided that videotape would be an effective and consistent method for instructing residents on the Housekeeping Standards required to maintain residency in PHA properties. PHA staff produced a twenty-minute video that demonstrates the best methods and materials for maintaining acceptable housekeeping standards. The PHA now uses this tool to provide housekeeping education and instruction to all residents who are new to the PHA and to all current residents who are having trouble maintaining proper housekeeping standards.

The video was written, produced and narrated by PHA staff. All scenes in the video were shot in PHA homes and apartments and on PHA property. The actors in the video are PHA employees, residents, friends and relatives. There are four versions of the video reflecting the four principal languages spoken by PHA residents: English, Spanish, Hmong and Somali.

The PHA is marketing this video to other housing agencies that seek a cost-effective method of educating residents about housekeeping standards and requirements. The video is available in DVD format. The DVD version includes all four languages with programmable scenes, giving quick access for reviewing specific areas of concern.

The video received an Agency Award for Innovation from the Minnesota Chapter of NAHRO and an Award of Merit from the National NAHRO.
