Commissioner Ovesey commended the width breadth of Project Renewal programs. She said,
"I was amazed that Project Renewal was working on preventing homelessness and treating the underlying causes as early as 1967, a good 20 years before they were widely known."
Congrats staff and clients on 17 years!
