On July 17, 2019, the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee (HACM) welcomed nearly 300 people to its annual meeting to celebrate the ripples of hope created throughout its 75 years of providing high quality, affordable housing options and supportive services to Milwaukee families, seniors, disabled adults, and veterans. During the event HACM recognized several partners for helping the agency achieve its mission to foster strong, resilient, and inclusive communities. One of those was Brigadier General Robert A. Cocroft (Ret.) who served as the National Commander of the National Association of Black Veterans (NABVETS) and passed away last year. He was honored with a special memorial award that was accepted by his wife, Jacqueline Cocroft (center). Also honored was the American Legion which received a donation that was accepted by 4th District Vice Commander Tim Baranzyk (second from right). The HACM also unveiled its new veterans housing project Victory Manor (inset).
