July 2012 — The National Health Care for the Homeless Council (NHCHC) nominated CHOP’s Homeless Health Initiative for the White House Champions of Change Award, under the category of Innovative Work in Ending Youth and Child Homelessness.
The Champions of Change program was created as a part of President Obama’s Winning the Future initiative. Each week, a different sector is highlighted and groups of Champions — ranging from educators to entrepreneurs to community leaders — are recognized for the work they are doing to serve and strengthen their communities.
NHCHC is a service and advocacy group that strives to break the link between poor health and homelessness.
