On Nov. 19 we attended the BC Non-Profit Housing Association's Housing Central Conference Sector Supper, where we were joined by staff, volunteer organizers, and some of our most recent monthly backers.
We celebrated our shared work on housing affordability, and were thrilled to receive the Housing Champion 2017 award!
"HOUSING CHAMPION AWARD: Recognizes and individual or organization that has made a transformative contribution to the affordable housing sector through superior commitment to and leadership in the industry."
We are so grateful to the BC Non Profit Housing Association for awarding us with this special honour! And we were very happy to share the evening with a wide cross section of amazing people who help make our work possible.
Thank you to the @BCNPHA for recognizing our efforts on tackling housing affordability! We're only just getting started :D #bcpoli #cdnpoli #VanRE #YVR #YYJ #HousingCrisis #affordability #CodeRed pic.twitter.com/n8jXGFOmnA— Generation Squeeze (@GenSqueeze) November 22, 2017
We don't get nearly enough opportunities to put down the pencils, clipboards, and laptops so we can celebrate our achievements together. So thank YOU, too, dear Gen Squeeze supporter. We can do anything with you, and nothing without you.
