Bozman Awards

Housing [S]heroes: 11 Female Advocates, Activists and Government Leaders

On December 7, 2014, AHS honored eleven Housing [S]heroes with the annual Ellen M. Bozman Affordable Housing Award, with 140 community leaders in attendance. The recipients of the award, many who could trace their activism over several decades, pushed back against the status quo to create conditions for the Arlington we know today. In honor of our [S]heroes’ service, AHS made a special donation to Doorways for Women and Families.
