Supporters came out in full force to “Celebrate Community” with Community Partners for Affordable Housing (CPAH) at a sold out event on April 23.
The overwhelming support for CPAH and affordable housing was evident as CPAH resident Laurence Marks, a single father of four, told his compelling story of a family tragedy that turned his stable life upside down. Fortunately, Laurence was able to move with his four children into a CPAH apartment, and he remarked that calling CPAH “was the best phone call I ever made.”
CPAH honored Jami Sharfman of Highland Park, Tom Morsch of Lake Forest, and Fred Wilson of Evanston for their significant efforts to help CPAH continue to provide affordable housing opportunities and stability for local low and moderate income households, like Laurence’s.
Tenth Dems was represented at the event by Founding Chair Lauren Beth Gash
