NCHH30 Throwback Thursday
Week 10: August 4, 2022
by Christopher Bloom
NCHH turns THIRTY this year, so we’re celebrating with a new “Throwback Thursday” photo each week.
This week’s #throwback is a group photo taken August 4, 2016—six years ago today—for our “Find It, Fix It, Fund It” (#FindFixFund) meeting at The Pew Charitable Trusts. So many heavy hitters attended that this might as well be the “’27 Yankees” of healthy housing. Many of the all-stars pictured here worked for NCHH or served on NCHH’s board; several others served as partners in our work at times over the past 30 years; and a few were new allies. We look forward to working with all of them more in the future.
