CAPSC housing team honored with leadership award

CAPSC Housing Team 

Community Action Partnership of Strafford County was honored to be named the 2022 Housing Leadership Award winner by the Workforce Housing Coalition of the Greater Seacoast.

The Workforce Housing Coalition annually recognizes housing leaders making a difference in the community. CAPSC was recognized during a December 2022 ceremony for our dedication to helping people stay in their homes and off the streets, according to CAPSC Director of Community Services Dan Clark.

“It is truly an honor to receive this award and to be recognized by the coalition for the work that our team is doing,” said Clark. “Just as much of an honor, however, is to be in the position to be able to help so many people. The work we are doing is such a small part of the larger solution that is needed, but it has such a meaningful impact on people. While we wish the need for this type of support wasn’t as great as it is, we are proud to be able to help.”

The Workforce Housing Coalition honored CAPSC during a celebration and awards ceremony on Dec. 1, 2022, at the One Hundred Club in Portsmouth. 

During the event, Bangor Savings Bank received the Business Leadership Award, the Town of Exeter was named the Municipal Leadership Award winner, the Portsmouth Housing Authority was honored with the Visionary Leadership Award, and Jay Childs was named Volunteer of the Year.
