Ruby Awards


2017 Ruby Awards

One of SDHF’s signature events, the annual Ruby Awards is the county’s largest affordable housing industry recognition event honoring the best people, projects, and achievements during the past year. Every year, hundreds of housing and community leaders from across the region and around the state will be on hand to applaud winners in more than a dozen categories and be inspired by their achievements.

2017 Ruby Awards was held on Thursday, June 1, 2017
at the Prado in Balboa Park

The Ruby Awards recognize excellence in affordable housing and community development, highlighting the accomplishments of people, agencies and developments that work to ensure all San Diegans, regardless of income, have a safe, stable place they can afford to call home.

Congratulations to the 2017 Housing Champion
Catherine A. Rodman, Esq.

In past years, this award has been called the “Lifetime Achievement” award, but many in the organization felt that this implied that the honoree was in the twilight of their career, and we wanted to be clear that this award is intended to recognize someone who is active in affordable housing, has contributed many years to the cause here in the San Diego region, and who serves as an inspiration to their colleagues.

We are proud to announce that this year’s Housing Champion is Catherine Rodman, Director and Supervising Attorney for Affordable Housing Advocates. Catherine’s career, which she describes as “impact advocacy,” spans nearly 30 years in San Diego and includes being one of the founders of the San Diego Housing Federation. Her work reflects a relentless and unwavering commitment to affordable housing and tenants’ rights. At times pushing the envelope, Catherine’s vision for more inclusive communities and quality homes for all makes her a deserving recipient of this year’s Housing Champion award.

We look forward to seeing you all at the Ruby Awards, and ask you to join us there in honoring Catherine Rodman and all of our other nominees who have committed their efforts to the cause of housing all of our fellow citizens.
