Resident Candace Batiste Moves Out & Is Achieving Her Dreams
Candace Batiste Becomes LHA Public Housing Property Manager.
Hi, my name is Candace Batiste and I’m the Housing Supervisor for the Lafayette Housing Authority.
I enjoy many things in life, but what I really enjoy most is being able to help FAMILIES. I’ve always had a passion for helping. When I saw an opportunity, which was open to me in January 2019 and would give me the chance to work closely with families, I went for it. I had a feeling that I wasn’t good enough because I was living at the Macon Development but Mrs. Yvonda Bean, Executive Director/CEO, saw past that and gave me the opportunity to be a part of the LHA family.
I wanted to show my family and peers that anything is achievable. I first joined LHA as a Housing Specialist (Assistant Manager). Then I was promoted to Housing Supervisor within four months. Within that time, I’ve showed not only my families, but my LHA Team that I’m passionate about what I do. My number one goal working for LHA is to change lives, give hope and be an inspiration to others.
