Linda Coleman, vice president of resident services for HumanGood affordable housing, was selected as the recipient of the 2020 LeadingAge-Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) award for health equity. The award recognizes an individual or team who have worked successfully to ensure that older adults, no matter where they live or what their socioeconomic background, have equal access to services, supports, and opportunities that will help them lead healthy lives and achieve overall well-being.
“I’m incredibly grateful to receive this award,” said Linda. “I’m fortunate to work with people who have the heart and passion for resident services, and wouldn’t have received this award if it wasn’t for the loyalty and hard work of the resident services and operations teams. Resident services are among the first to know if a resident does not have sufficient food or is suffering from a chronic health condition, and help our residents remain housed in our affordable housing communities.”
HumanGood is honored to have been recognized by LeadingAge for two consecutive years. In 2019, Ancel Romero, former president of HumanGood affordable housing, was named the Grassroots Advocate of the Year for his work on educating his team and residents on important public policy developments in California. In 2020, Linda Coleman was selected as the recipient of LeadingAge California’s Outstanding Mentor of the Year award.
LeadingAge is the nation’s leading advocate for quality, non-profit senior living and care. The association’s advocacy, education programs, and public relations helps its members serve the needs of the nation’s older adults.
The award will be presented at LeadingAge’s 2021 annual meeting which will be held October 24-27 in Atlanta, GA.
Congratulations to Linda on this well-deserved award!
