We want to thank the Jewish Times for its cover story about Ken Gelula and CHAI (“Life of CHAI,” Dec. 21). On behalf of the entire CHAI community — especially our clients and residents — we want to confirm that the story captured the essence of Ken Gelula, the man and the greatness of his accomplishments. His vision, and the endless hours he, his staff, and countless volunteers have dedicated to making that vision a reality, has ensured the stability of the Upper Park Heights neighborhood.
As two seasoned professionals in the field of affordable housing and community development, we can assure your readers that Ken would be a member of the Hall of Fame in the field, if there was one. The community of Northwest Baltimore has been blessed to benefit from his service, and we applaud the Jewish Times for recognizing such. Together, we pledge to move from strength to strength, building on the 29-year-long legacy of Ken’s and CHAI’s accomplishments.
