The Housing Authority of Joliet is something very dear to Dr. Glenda McCullum’s heart. She has served on the board of commissioners since November 2016 and is currently the vice-chairperson.
Glenda and her family were given the opportunity to better their lives when they moved into the DesPlaines Street Housing Development.
McCullum says it breaks her heart to see individuals struggling to obtain one of the most basic necessities of life, so it is her desire to reach back and assist in giving others safe, sanitary, and affordable housing.
She looks forward to continued collaborative efforts with the staff of the H.A.J., the executive director, and board of commissioners in the ongoing effort of making a mark in the city of Joliet by creating sustainable housing. Outside her service at the H.A.J., Glenda has an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity degree from St.Thomas Christian College. She is also the founder and senior pastor of Gateway Worship Assembly in Joliet.
In addition, Glenda is the birth mother of three children, and the single parent of five foster children whom she adopted. As well, Glenda has nine grandchildren.
