For 15 years, NHC member Preservation of Affordable Housing (POAH) has stayed true to its mission to preserve, create and sustain affordable, healthy homes that support economic security and access to opportunity for all. On Sept. 28, the organization will recognize all of its hard work and accomplishments in an anniversary celebration in Boston featuring a symposium and reception.

The anniversary celebration will feature a keynote from the Urban Institute’s president and CEO, Sarah Rosen Wartell, on strategies for addressing poverty and income inequality. A town-hall discussion focused on housing and community development in the next presidential administration and Congress will follow Wartell’s remarks and feature NHC’s president and CEO, Chris Estes, as presenter. POAH board member Reese Fayde will moderate the session.

Following the discussions, a reception will take place in the Boston Society of Architects’ Gallery. There is no charge to attend the event, but those interested in helping POAH celebrate its anniversary should RSVP to by Friday, Sept. 16.
