Rockwood Building earns award

by: Jim Clark Jean DeMaster, executive director of Human Solutions welcomed visitors to the organization’s new building in Rockwood last summer.

The Rockwood Building, which is owned by Human Solutions and opened this fall, has been named a winner of a national community development award.

The Audrey Nelson Community Development Achievement Award recognizes the building's mission to address the needs of families and neighborhoods, all while using city-issued Community Development Block Grant funds, as well as funding from the HOME Investment Partnerships Program and other community development funds.

The National Community Development Association will present the award in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 20.

Those on the judging panel cited the project's multiple funding sources and its effect on neighborhood redevelopment with a comprehensive, sustainable approach.
