Housing America's Heroes

NHC's 40th Annual Gala honored the organizations that serve America's veterans by meeting their housing needs. NHC chose this theme to shine a light on a housing industry united in its desire to serve this critical and growing need and the partnerships (public and private) that are making a difference. More than 700 leaders in the housing policy and veterans' affairs worlds gathered to celebrate the achievements of our 2012 honorees.

The tone of the evening, while celebratory, also presented a call to action for even greater involvement from the housing sector and explore the public policy imperative that is mobilizing our industry to meet the diverse needs that will continue to grow as more veterans return home.
