Housing Heroes Event Honors Community Members and Partners

There were lots of smiles, hugs, and shout-outs at last week’s 16th annual Housing Heroes event! It was a full house at the Redwood Shores Library and Supervisor Warren Slocum said it was the largest crowd there’s ever been! Speakers and recipients discussed the importance of stable housing for maintaining emotional and overall health and emphasized housing as being a cornerstone in the process of recovery. Award recipients included community partners who have shown exceptional leadership in providing and maintaining housing for community members. For many, these efforts were especially significant this past year given the devastating impact of the tragic shootings and winter storms on the coast. We got to hear from community members who expressed gratitude and appreciation for the meaningful, life-changing services and connections that the San Mateo community has provided and fostered. Shoutout to BHRS’s very own Mariana Rocha, Kelsey Dattilo, Lee Harrison and the many others who were involved in making this event a success!
