Center City Housing Employee Honored with Minnesota Job Honor Award

Minnesota Job Honor Award Winner Telisha Madison with Presenter Kyle Horn, Founder & Director, America’s Job Honor Awards

Telisha Madison, a San Marco employee, received the prestigious Minnesota Job Honor Award at a Minnesota Chamber of Commerce event in Brooklyn Park on May 9th.

The award aims at recognizing Minnesotans who have overcome the barriers in achieving successful employment after living through dire situations. Madison was chosen from a wide range of state-wide nominees, all of whom have overcome barriers to employment.

After growing up in a succession of foster homes while her mother was in prison, Madison overcame poverty and homelessness with her determination and hard work to build a successful career with Center City Housing. She is a critical member of our staff and we are lucky to have her as an employee!
