About the Award
This award was established in 1996 to honor Hathaway Ferebee’s contributions to CPHA, her commitment to Baltimore’s neighborhoods, and to the involvement of residents in community and city life. The award is given to a neighborhood organization or group that best reflects the values of community organizing. The organization must have, during the past year, effectively rallied residents to address an issue of importance to the community and, in doing so, achieved a measurable, recognizable change in the community.
Thanks to the generosity of a group of people who contributed to establish this award, it carries a monetary value each year of $1,000. This award money may be used at the discretion of the group receiving the award to continue community improvement efforts.
