Ms. O'Hara will be honored during the Annual CCD Meeting which will take place on January 9, 2013 in Washington, DC.
In her letter to Ms. O'Hara, Donna Meltzer, Chair of CCD, wrote:
"Since 1994 you and the Technical Assistance Collaborative have been instrumental in supporting our efforts to expand access to decent, safe and affordable housing for people with disabilities. Over the last 18 years of this partnership we have been able to affect a great deal of change in the availability of housing options for people with disabilities and have fought against countless threats to housing budget cuts. Most importantly, with your assistance, CCD has been able to raise the awareness level of housing issue to Members of Congress, Hill staff, federal agency personnel and our own members."
