Positively Living’s Supportive Housing Program Wins 2017 Equity Award from City of Knoxville

At the Equity Awards Breakfast on April 18, Mayor Madeline Rogero and the City of Knoxville’s Community Development Director Becky Wade recognized community development projects that prioritize fair and affordable housing, job creation, and inclusion of persons with disabilities.

“Today’s award recipients make Knoxville a better place to live for everyone,” Mayor Rogero told the events attendees at The Standard on Jackson Avenue. “These partners and projects extend the City’s community development efforts to revitalize low-and-moderate income communities and provide jobs and recreation opportunities to all residents.”

Positively Living’s Supportive Housing Program provides housing and case management to men living with a combination of mental illness, substance abuse, and catastrophic illness.
