You should always use caution when giving out any personally identifying information about yourself or your children in any Communication Service.  The Detroit Housing Commission does not control or endorse the content, messages or information found in any Communication Service and, therefore, the Detroit Housing Commission specifically disclaims any liability with regard to the Communication Services and any actions resulting from your participation in any Communication Service.  Managers and hosts are not authorized Detroit Housing Commission spokespersons, and their views do not necessarily reflect those of the Detroit Housing Commission.
