U.S.VETS-Phoenix, in collaboration with Cloudbreak Communities, was awarded the 2012 Brian Mickelsen Housing Hero Award for “Innovative Supportive Housing Program”. U.S.VETS-Phoenix and Cloudbreak Communities were commended for their innovative housing programs for homeless veterans. The unique partnership between U.S.VETS, a non-profit organization, and Cloudbreak, a for-profit company, results in creative housing programs that yield true positive results.
The Brian Mickelsen Housing Hero Award is named after a pioneer in the Arizona housing industry, whose fervor to serve underrepresented populations was cut short due to an accident. The Arizona Department of Housing has been housing awards in Brian’s memory and honor since 2008.
