Realtor Trudy Harsh of Centreville uses her professional skills to find and purchase housing for the mentally ill, which we’ve noted a couple times in the past. She started the Brain Foundation specifically to accomplish this important mission, and the townhouses — nine of them total — are each called Laura’s House, in honor of Harsh’s late daughter.
Now the National Association of Realtors has bestowed their national ”Good Neighbor Award” on Harsh for having an impact on her community, one of
eight five people recognized. The Brain Foundation will get a $10,000 check plus a $2,000 gift card from Lowe’s, which Harsh said would go promptly to upgrades for the houses.
But really you should watch this beautifully made video by the National Association of Realtors, in which Harsh describes the vital work she does.
