For over twenty one years, the Rollins School of Public has honored the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Service Awards Program. This year they presented an award to Nicholas House, recognizing their service to homeless families. Accepting the award was Rogers & Hardin partner Robert C. Hussle, who is President of Nicholas House.
"When Nicholas House began operations 32 years ago, no agency in Atlanta provided shelter to homeless families, whatever their composition, or equipped them with skills necessary to break the cycle of poverty and to build the foundation for long-term self-sufficiency," said Mr. Hussle in his remarks. "Since that time, Nicholas House has helped more than 1500 families (more than 10,000 people) overcome homelessness and develop a success plan for their future. It’s a beautiful legacy for Dr. King, and, on behalf of our dedicated staff and Board of Directors, thank you for recognizing Nicholas House."
This year's program, as in past years, is sponsored by the Rollins School of Public Health and the Goizueta Business School and our theme is "Finding Common Ground to Bridge the Divide". This event took place on January 23, 2014.
