Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA) was honored during PR News’ Corporate Social Responsibility Awards luncheon February 24 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.


Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is one of the key benchmarks of an organization’s overall success and reputation in the marketplace. PR News’ CSR Awards recognize corporations and partners that have executed highly successful and impactful CSR campaigns. These awards recognize both the communications surrounding a CSR initiative and the initiative itself, depending on the category entered.
NRHA’s “Under One Roof” campaign was a finalist in the video category. The other finalists in this category were: Coca-Cola Enterprises– CCE Virtual Facility Tour; The Baron Edmond de Rothschild Chemical Dependency Institute of Beth Israel Medical Center NY, NY - In My Backyard: Dispelling the Myths About Methadone Treatment; Consolidated Edison - The Power of Green Video Series; Seattle City Light - Shrinking Big Foot.


The award went to Coca-Cola Enterprises for their video showcasing the green capabilities of its state-of-the-art bottling plant in Bellevue, Washington.
To launch its five-year strategic plan (2008-2012), the Authority embarked on a new communications program with an annual report, achievements video and new marketing look. The theme, “Under One Roof,” pulled together the full range of products, programs and services delivered by an exceptional staff. These highlights were put together in print and video format – a first for this nearly 70-year-old organization.


The “Under One Roof” campaign supported the goals established in NRHA’s strategic plan:

Under One Roof
• Quality housing opportunities for all;
• Sustainable mixed-income communities;
• A strategic business approach;
• Community engagement and support.


Each goal provided an opportunity to showcase the efforts made by NRHA to improve the City of Norfolk, provide opportunities to residents and offer employees occasions for involvement.
