While we recover from last night's festivities, check out some of the coverage of our Awards Ceremony from across the country:
- Folks in New Orleans joined us in recognizing the re-housing and prevention efforts of UNITY GNO. In particular, this piece notes that the organization got 500 homeless people in their own apartments over eight months after Hurricance Katrina.
- The Seattle Post-Intelligencer heralded the success of congressional ally Senator Patty Murray, as well as baseball-player-turned-affordable housing champion Mo Vaughn.
- The Boston Globe shouted out to hometown hero Mo Vaughn.
- In the Huffington Post, Alliance President Nan Roman wrote about our awardees:
These leaders have proven that through innovation, creativity, and unyielding allegiance to the cause, we can make progress on the greatest social challenges. Their examples show that we can aim towards a time when everyone has a place to call home.
This is what we aspire to tonight, as we gather to recognize the achievement towards our collective goal. This is what we honor, the persistent hope of a country without homelessness. This is what ending homelessness looks like.
