Why apply? Check out this “thank you” letter from our resident students!
Dear Mr. Cunningham,
I wanted to take the time to thank you for creating the HDH Housing Grant. Because of the grant, my colleague and I were able to plan and host a picnic for Sixth College residents. It allowed us to create a fun social program, where we got to know one another, relax, and have a great meal. The picnic was very successful and the residents greatly enjoyed the boxed lunches from HDH Hospitality Express. Again thank you so much; we really appreciate it! We are extremely grateful to you and HDH.
