Know who you are inviting onto Beaufort Housing Property


We take the safety of our community very seriously and we ask that residents and visitors do the same. 
Residents have a legal responsibility under the Residential Lease Agreement as well as a moral obligation to their children and neighbors to know who they are allowing on Public Housing property. There is no greater threat to the health, safety, and the right to peaceful enjoyment of our community by residents, staff, and visitors than the presence of those who have engaged in violent crime, drug related activities, or sex offences.
It is our mission and should be your desire to maintain a safe environment to call home. This cannot be accomplished without cooperation between staff, residents, visitors, and Law Enforcement. 
Don't invite anyone onto the property or allow your children to do so until you have performed a Public Offender search. This is not an invasion of anyone's privacy or a violation of rights. This is a search for publicly available information. You have a right and an obligation to know who you will be exposing your family and your community to. If you do not have access to the internet through a home computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone, you can utilize public computers available at school, through the local library, or at internet cafes. You can access the North Carolina Offender Registry at, 
The Housing Authority has an on-site Resource Officer on Second Street, Officer Paulo Ferreira will be glad to assist you with any issue or concern that you may have, or he will put you in contact with someone who can. Please don't hesitate to ask a member of our staff for help, we will maintain your privacy.
The Authority cannot and will not discriminate in the enforcement of the rules. Everyone will be held accountable for violations of their obligations under the Residential Lease Agreement. Please help us to ensure that our community will continue to be a safe and enjoyable place for everyone.
