Dear friends,

I know many of you received the sad news last week that our Prologue family lost one of its best. Stu Hancock passed away on Thursday, 2/9 following an illness. Stu had great passion for his work as our Homeless Outreach Director. Since 2000 Stu led the way in providing services to individuals and families that were homeless in Baltimore County. He was an outspoken advocate, a mentor to staff and recognized as a community leader. He had a heart of gold and connected easily with the homeless population. He shared his philosophy, “where the rubber meets the road,” as the mantra that guides the daily work of Prologue’s Homeless Outreach Team as they journey throughout the county meeting people in need of services wherever they are – in campsites, shelters and on the streets.

We mourn his loss and celebrate his memory because he gave so much to all of us.
A memorial service will be held to celebrate Stu’s life.  His wife, Beverly Marlowe Hancock , welcomes  everyone to attend:

HUD Historic Preservation Award - Call for Nominations

HUD is partnering with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) to offer the HUD Secretary’s Award for Excellence in Historic Preservation. The 2017 Award will be given to a project that promotes affordable housing, community revitalization, and/or enhanced economic opportunities through the continued use or adaptive re-use of historic buildings and neighborhoods.
The deadline for nominations is March 27, 2017 and details about the criteria and submission process for the HUD Historic Preservation Award are available now.
Projects completed within the last three years with HUD funding or financing are eligible to apply. Work must meet preservation guidelines - the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation. The award will be presented in conjunction with ACHP’s business meeting in July.
The Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) and the Office of Environment and Energy (OEE) developed the award with ACHP, an independent federal agency that advises the President and Congress on historic preservation matters and administers the regulations that implement Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. HUD is a designated member of the Council. The HUD Secretary’s Award was previously offered jointly with the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
