The Ardath M. Cade Scholarship Fund Committee announced its first scholarship recipient at the Anne Arundel Affordable Housing Coalition Holiday Luncheon on Friday, December 16th in Annapolis. Chauncey Hall, Program Manager at ACDS, was awarded $1,000 to put towards a weeklong management and leadership training course. Mr. Hall, who manages a staff of six, oversees ACDS’ counseling and homeownership programs. Chauncey and his team work with low income clients on a daily basis who are going through some of the most stressful life events people experience, whether it be buying a home for the first time, struggling to save a home from foreclosure, managing finance and credit obstacles after medical illness or loss, or going through extensive home renovations for several months or more. Chauncey applied for this scholarship so that he could learn management techniques that he can share with his team when dealing with these difficult situations and help improve the lives of these low income residents.
