Congratulations to the March 2017 BHP Partnership Awards winners!
Our Partnership Awards program recognizes the efforts of individuals, businesses, corporate partners, and non-profit and governmental agencies for their support of BHP and its mission. At the March 13, 2017 Board of Commissioners meeting, BHP staff presented awards to the following non-profit, business and volunteer partners:
Volunteer Partner: Lyn Young
Lyn is an expert knitter who devotes her time and teaches residents at High Mar how to knit. During her weekly visits to High Mar she helps residents make scarves, sweaters, and complete other knitting projects. Boulder Housing Partners would like to thank Lyn for her continued time and patience she devotes to the residents at High Mar.
Receiving Award: Lyn Young
Business Partner: Catluck - David Kennedy
Catluck is a consulting and engineering company specializing in wireless networking solutions. They are Boulder Housing Partners’ provider for installing and maintaining the wireless infrastructure at many of BHP’s properties. Catluck’s owner, David Kennedy, has gone above and beyond to help us maintain our wireless system - even at properties where the installation was done by another company. For a small business to support hardware that they did not install can be difficult for even the most experienced technical wizard. Catluck is an amazing company to work with and an all-star in the eyes of BHP.
Receiving Award: David Kennedy
Government Partner/Volunteer Partner: Boulder Police Department - Homeless Outreach Team
The Homeless Outreach Team of the Boulder Police Department consists of two hometown heroes – Officer Jenny Paddock and Officer Abel Ramos. Their compassion and drive to help the homeless community has expanded beyond the streets and is now helping Lee Hill house people with disabilities who have experienced chronic homelessness. Before Lee Hill many of our residents would have been considered ‘unhouseable’ based on their criminal records and some of the behaviors caused by their disabilities. Jenny’s and Abel’s participation in Lee Hill keeps growing. They help our residents move into housing, they create a sense of consistency through the transition, and they make Lee Hill an even better place to live.
Receiving Award: Officer Jenny Paddock and Officer Abel Ramos
Volunteer Partner: Gail Promboin
Gail moved from being a neighbor concerned about the building of the Lee Hill Community to a champion of the site. She served on the Good Neighbor Statement of Operations advisory board and currently serves on the Neighborhood Advisory Committee. She graciously fields countless inquiries from researchers and press wanting to know about the Lee Hill Community and permanent, supportive housing in general. Gail has spent enumerable hours engaging with staff and community members, helping to formulate the best possible outcome for residents at 1175 Lee Hill and the North Boulder Community. We are very grateful for her continued partnership and dedication to community service.
Receiving Award: Gail Promboin

Boulder Housing Partners became acquainted with Amy when she contacted us regarding her questions and concerns surrounding the Lee Hill project. While serving on the Good Neighbor Statement of Operations advisory committee, Amy came to embrace the concept of Housing First. She has been a catalyst for building a sense of community in North Boulder, a great partner to BHP, and the greater Holiday Neighborhood. BHP appreciates Amy’s time and effort working with the Lee Hill Community.
