As Asian Neighborhood Design celebrates a landmark 40 years with their 40 for 40 series (http://www.andnet.org/
), we would like to congratulate former AND Executive Director Maurice Lim Miller for being named as a 2012 MacArthur Fellow!
"Maurice Lim Miller is a leader in the development of services and systems designed to break the cycle of economic dependency for low-income families across the United States. Frustrated by the frequent recidivism into poverty he witnessed during his two decades with Asian Neighborhood Design, an agency focused on tenant rights, job training, and youth development, Lim Miller founded the Family Independence Initiative (FII) in 2001 with the goal of helping low-income working families who often struggle in isolated circumstances or without clear direction build their own pathways to self-sufficiency."
