Claudia Coger

Astoria Houses Resident Association
For the past three years, Claudia Coger has acted as the President of Astoria Houses Resident Association. An advocate for the residents of the Astoria Houses projects, Coger is responsible for speaking on behalf of members of her community. She takes care of everything from registering residents to vote to dealing with maintenance issues. “I do whatever I see fit to empower the community,” said Coger.

In 1993, Coger retired from her job as an assistant train dispatcher with the New York City Transit Authority – a position she held for 25 years. Since retiring, she has spent most of her free time giving back to the community.

Coger has been a resident of Astoria Houses for 56 years. She raised seven children in Astoria Houses, and has been volunteering in her community since first arriving in New York.
