NHS 2021 Annual Awards

On March 11, 2021, NHS hosted our (Virtual) Annual Awards celebrating transformative impact across the South and West sides of the city and the South suburbs. Our program honored Maricela Garcia (Gads Hills), King Harris (IHDA), and Raul Raymundo and Raul Hernandez (The Resurrection Project) with the Community Impact Award, Transformative Impact Award and Gale Cincotta Community Visionary Awards, respectively, for their tireless efforts creating thriving neighborhoods where all are proud to call home.

Additionally, we highlighted King Harris, John Rogers Jr. (Ariel Investments), Scott Swanson (PNC Illinois), and Andrea Zopp (Cleveland Avenue) as they discussed actionable ways to improve our communities and the families who live, grow and play in neighborhoods challenged by marginalization

INVEST IN NHS

Since our founding over 45 years ago, NHS has been challenging the status quo that began with redlining. Today we work towards equity in access and resources where continued disinvestment has meant poor outcomes for Black and Brown communities as a whole. NHS does this through partnerships with outstanding community agencies and thought-partners, as well as, through the support of businesses and philanthropic leaders. The (Virtual) Annual Awards raised over $463,000 in support of NHS’ work in Chicago communities. These financial contributions not only allows NHS to adapt our programs and services to meet the emerging needs of Chicagoland residents during a pandemic, but also stay on course in our fight to end racist housing policies and practices, close the racial wealth gap, and create neighborhoods of choice
Support our mission. Invest in NHS today.
Together, we can foster vibrant, stable, and safe places to live for families of color and create a more equitable Chicagoland.
