The partnership of the DRC and Paulos Foundation took honors Nov. 17 in A Night of Light, the CNM Connect annual awards program recognizing excellence in the North Texas nonprofit sector.

The partnership won Nonprofit Partner of the Year for redeveloping the Palm Tree Apartments, a housing community for people once homeless, in cooperation with Fort Worth Housing Solutions.

It is the second award for the project given this year to the partnership of the DRC, the Paulos Foundation and Fort Worth Housing Solutions.

Fort Worth Housing Solutions and project partners also won an Award of Excellence from the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials recognizing the Palm Tree Apartments as a project that produces affordable housing through innovation or public/private partnerships.

The 24-unit Palm Tree Apartments, built in 1955, today provides permanent supportive housing for people who were formerly homeless, 80 percent of whom had lived unsheltered in the surrounding Six Points Urban Village.

The Paulos Foundation bought the complex in late 2015 and renovated. It opened to residents in May 2016.

DRC Executive Director Bruce Frankel and Paulos Foundation President Flora Brewer accepted the award on behalf of project partners. Nonprofit Partner of the Year was one of five awards presented in A Night of Light at the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas by CNM Connect, formerly The Center for Nonprofit Management.
