KODIAK, AK – August 22, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Sandra Amox, Alaska Housing Finance Corporation’s (AHFC) asset supervisor in Kodiak, is retiring at the end of this month after a 22-year career in Alaska’s public housing sector.
Amox’s passion for public housing began with her experience as a resident of Pacific Terrace, an AHFC property in Kodiak. She was living at the Terrace, working three part-time jobs, raising three kids and attending classes at the university. She’d often visit with the office manager and inquire about a job in the office. When that office manager left the position, Amox was hired.
Through the years, Amox’s responsibilities grew, and in her current position as asset supervisor, she manages 40 public housing units in Kodiak and administers 100 Housing Choice Vouchers that offer rent subsidies to qualifying low-income residents.
“Sandra is truly a public housing success story,” said Cathy Stone, AHFC director of public housing. “We were there to provide housing, but she did all of the hard work to make herself truly successful. Then she was able to apply her experience and background to the job in a very meaningful way; she understood what the residents were going through and guide them toward success.”
Amox will stay in Kodiak after her retirement. She is very involved in the community and will continue her work with Kodiak’s Homeless Committee. A community lunch in honor of her retirement will be held in the Pacific Terrace community room located at 521 Maple Street in Kodiak, on Friday, August 24, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend.
Robinette Sagalkin, the current housing program specialist in Kodiak and longtime AHFC employee, will be
promoted to the role of asset supervisor as of September 1.
