During its May 18, 2022, inaugural corporate breakfast at the NASCAR Hall
of Fame, nonprofit partner Charlotte Family Housing presented its 2022
Community Service Award to McGuireWoods. Richmond partner
Brad Ridlehoover accepted the award on behalf of the firm.
The award recognizes the substantial pro bono corporate and tax work by
Ridlehoover and Raleigh office managing partner
Mary Nash Rusher. They represented Charlotte Family Housing in a joint venture with an
affordable-housing developer to work cooperatively on an apartment
development in Raleigh, North Carolina. A subsidiary of Charlotte Family
Housing will serve as the general partner of the venture.
The firm has a long pro bono history with Charlotte Family Housing,
beginning with the incorporation of Workforce Initiative for Supportive
Housing in 2009 and its merger with two other housing nonprofits in 2011 to
create Charlotte Family Housing. Charlotte partner
Harrison Marshall spearheaded these efforts.
Charlotte Family Housing
is a nonprofit organization that helps working families experiencing
homelessness achieve self-sufficiency through shelter, housing, supportive
services and advocacy.
