Vien Sati, Foremen for Rockford Housing Authority, began his career at RHA in December of 1987. He has risen through the maintenance ranks starting as a janitor and was promoted in April of 2018 to Foreman of overall day to day operations for RHA. Vien, after 33 years of tireless service at RHA, is now retiring.

A virtual Zoom party was held to celebrate Vien and his services to RHA, the community, and the residents. Laura Snyder, RHA CEO, states, “I can’t begin to tell you how much heartfelt gratitude there is from the residents toward you, Vien, for always showing them exactly how much you care for them and the environment in which they live. I don’t think that there is a person out there that would not applaud you and your efforts.” Vien was very dedicated to the RHA Mission to partner with the community, and responsible residents, to transform houses into homes while guiding families to self-sufficiency.  He is grateful for the opportunity to be of service to RHA and the community.
