In this industry of affordable housing preservation, often we are working so hard that we forget to see the change we make in people’s lives. I was touched when one of my employees forwarded me the following article prefacing it with:
“Hey Rob, I don't know if you've already seen this article, but I was so happy to read this, I wanted to share it with you. I know a lot of us, myself included, have worked on HUD projects in New Orleans, and it's really great to see the difference we can make. I am so happy and proud to be a part of a company that works toward ensuring SAFE and affordable housing. Even if we only played a small part in this, we got to be part of the solution to getting a couple hundred people who served our country off the streets and into homes!“
Just wanted to share that view with everyone, as it reminds us that we should all be grateful to have the opportunity to help others in the work we perform. Doing well, by doing good, is a great thing.
Let’s raise a cheer for 2015 and push for more affordable housing for those that need it the most!
