Yesterday, Joanne Handy and I attended PEP Housing’s ceremony celebrating their 2011 MetLife Foundation Award for Excellence in Affordable Housing for Casa Grande Senior Apartments in Petaluma. The award is a high honor, received only by a handful of top affordable housing communities nationwide, bestowed upon Casa Grande due to their green features, universal design and service enriched housing for seniors. They will receive $50,000 in unrestricted grant money to further their mission. Aging Services of California presented a certificate of appreciation, along with presenters, David Glass, Mayor of Petaluma, and a representative of Assembly member Jared Huffman’s office honoring PEP Housing’s work. PEP Housing will also be recognized at the LeadingAge Annual Conference, October 16 -19 in Washington, DC.
