Valley sponsors and attends Housing and Community Development of New Jersey’s (HCDNNJ) Under One Roof, Annual Community Development Conference

Valley sponsored and attended Housing and Community Development of New Jersey’s (HCDNNJ) Under One Roof, Annual Community Development Conference along with over 300 HCDNNJ non-profit housing and community development corporation members. Concurrent workshops focused on such relevant topics as Business Continuity for Housing Counseling Agencies and Intergenerational Housing and highlighted community economic development successes from Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design and Creative Placemaking strategies. 

Among many partners present, Valley also had the honor of announcing this year’s Advocacy and Organizing Award to Morris Habitat for Humanity as accepted by Blair Schleicher Bravo, CEO of the MHFH.  (Valley associates were among the 1500 volunteers who provided hands on support for MHFH’s 2018 Blitz Build and helped deliver 4 homes in 10 days!) Next year HCDNNJ celebrates their 30th year of improving the environment for the work of community development corporations (CDC) and strengthening CDC capacity in New Jersey.
