E.D. Discusses Housing with Congresswoman Linda Sanchez at Ceremony

On April 7th, Executive Director, Kristin Martin had the opportunity to discuss affordable housing with U.S. Congresswoman Linda Sánchez and Mayor Mike Mendez of Norwalk. The special occasion that brought these leaders together was a ceremony in which Congresswoman Linda Sánchez, who represents California's 39th Congressional District, presented a 2015 Congressional Recognition of Excellence Award to the City of Norwalk for their collaboration with HOPE on developing four stable and affordable homes for people with developmental disabilities.

We were honored to be invited by the city to share in the celebration! More so, we are proud of our ability to support the lives of our residents in taking even greater strides toward self reliance and engagement in the community. Housing is often times a critical step in this process, and HOPE is energized to continue our mission of providing stable and affordable homes to those with developmental disabilities. Our properties off of Fairford, Maidstone, Flatbush and Thornlake in Norwalk are excellent examples of this effort.
