Every day, the staff at City West Housing (CWH) hear uplifting stories of residents looking out for each other and doing projects that bring the community together. 

The Community Impact Awards is an initiative to celebrate CWH residents who are making a significant impact on the people around them. It’s part of our ongoing efforts to ensure all of our residents feel safe and welcomed in their CWH community. It helps us to uncover and shine a spotlight on stories about residents who are making a positive impact in their building and the broader community. And by sharing these great stories, we also think it’s a great way to build community.
