RCHA Welcomes Housing Case Manager

The Randolph County Housing Authority (RCHA) proudly welcomes Mikayah Irwin to our team.  Mikayah was hired to be our Housing Case Manager and will work out of the office located at 2280 Randolph Road.

Mikayah, as the Case Manager, will provide Housing Stabilization and Self-Sufficiency services to RCHA clients in Randolph, Barbour, Tucker, Lewis and Upshur counties.  As a Case Manager she will assist people experiencing homelessness to locate and secure affordable housing and will provide case management services to them.  Additionally, in this position, Mikayah will also enroll and support Section 8 voucher holders participating in the Family Self-Sufficiency program.

She graduated from Elkins High School and then attended West Virginia University where she obtained a Bachelors of Arts in Criminology degree.  During college, she worked at Walmart as a sales associate, cashier, and customer services associate.  Mikayah also worked for the student union at the WVU Mountainlair at the Information Desk while attending college.  After college, her first job was with Pressley Ridge Laurel Park as a Teacher Counselor. Her immediate prior experience, was at the Elkins Mountain Schools, where she was a youth treatment assistant and case manager.

During this time of “stay at home” Mikayah will be learning and educating herself on our programs and once we can resume normal contact, she will be ready to jump into action.  Mikayah will be reaching out to our partners in our local area social and homeless services during this stay at home time, to introduce herself and become familiar with the services we offer in our local counties.

RCHA is committed to assisting our most vulnerable citizens, by giving them pathways to Self-Sufficiency.  This means having the right the support and local resource contacts available for our vulnerable to find and keep safe and stable housing.
