This year, we will observe the depth of our organization’s commitment to creating homes that are more than just houses and a community that is more than a destination. We will share the stories of our work and the lives of Over-the-Rhine residents. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year’s event will be an online virtual gathering. We will still share time together honoring our community and sharing the impact that the current state of affairs has had on us and our neighbors. The stories shared elevate the value and reassurance that a stable home provides, especially now.
Each year, we present the Partner in Building Our Beloved Community Award to an individual and an organization that have played a significant role in helping us achieve our vision of quality, stable housing for all in a socially, racially, and economically inclusive community. This year, we are thrilled to present Partner in Building Our Beloved Community awards to Tender Mercies, and Fanni Johnson & Joe Wynn.
