EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION: Housing Authority of the Birmingham District’s (HABD) 27th Annual Employee Services and Recognition Awards Program took place via Zoom Friday morning (11-20-20) and more than 200 employees joined the event which celebrated all the hard work that goes on in the many departments to serve HABD residents. HABD Board of Commissioners Chairman, Cardell Davis, encouraged the employees to continue to do the work to take care of the least of these.
“We have a commitment to our residents to provide safe, decent and sanitary housing. We want to make sure the commitment is carried out. The staff helps make sure the mission is carried out,” said Davis.
HABD Commissioners Willie Jean Lewis and DeJuana Thompson were also in attendance to show support and commend employees for their achievements.
HABD’s new President/CEO, Mr. David A. Northern, Sr., was a surprise guest speaker during the virtual program and spoke about how special HABD’s employee recognition program is, especially this year.
Northern said, “A few words I would like to say to you guys is ‘Dream it, believe it and do it’; and one thing I can say is this year you’ve done that. Through COVID we’ve dealt with a number of obstacles and overcame a lot. I’m happy to say you guys are here being recognized for the hard work that you’re doing and I can’t wait to be a part of this team so we can move the organization further and continue the support for our residents. I’m just excited that this organization looks at its team members as individuals who are worthy of various awards and recognition.”
The awards presented include Years of Service Awards, Retiree Awards and Special Awards. Interim President/CEO, Dontrelle Young-Foster, was elated to be recognized for her 20 years of service and dedication to the agency. "It has been a beautiful journey," said Foster. "I am grateful for the support that has guided me through the years." She ended with two motivatng words for the employees, "Trust God," added Foster.
Employees had a chance to nominate their fellow coworkers for the Special Awards and a committee voted on each winner. Below is a list of the Special Awards winners, as well as Years of Service and Retiree Awards. Congratulations everyone!! #teamhabd David A Northern Sr.

HABD Partner Spotlight: The UAB Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Center (MHRC) is a partner at the Campus of Hope and assists in the guiding principle of Health and Wellness for HABD residents. *(Group photos below were taken prior to the COVID-19 pandemic)

Tiffany Osborne, Program Director II with UAB MHRC (pictured) said, “The MHRC creates successful programs to eliminate health disparities. But we do not do it alone. We join with community partners to build community capacity and provide skills and knowledge, empowering people to make a change. These programs are sustainable not because we invested money, but because we invested in people. They have made a change they will carry on. We are grateful to our partners in this journey toward better health for all.

The UAB MHRC provides nutritional tips and holds monthly “Lunch & Learn” events for HABD residents, which normally would be held inside the Campus of Hope. Due to COVID-19, the Lunch & Learns are now virtual.

“Due to COVID-19, we have not been able to provide services in person,” said Osborne. “We now offer Lunch & Learns via Zoom. Residents are encouraged to bring a lunch while listening to a designated professional share information on topics that will enable residents to live their best health.”

THANK YOU, UAB MHRC, for your ongoing efforts to improve the lives of HABD residents by instilling the importance of healthy living! **(Group photos below were taken prior to the COVID-19 pandemic) UAB Minority Health & Health Disparities Research Center UAB Medicine
