Last Monday night, Drew Goldsmith was honored by Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago (NHS) as one of their 2013 Neighborhood Heroes.  The awards honored eight individuals from the eight different target communities that NHS serves.  The eight heroes were selected on the basis of having made a positive impact in their community through both their professional and charitable work. 

Drew Goldsmith is a lifelong resident of North Lawndale. In his youth, he helped construct Lawndale Community Church and Lawndale Christian Health Center, contributing countless hours of physical labor. Five years ago, Goldsmith formed Golden Rule Construction as a formal way to volunteer his time on construction projects throughout North Lawndale.  A former Marine, Goldsmith now serves as a firefighter and Director of Facilities at Lawndale Christian Health Center.  The award ceremony was held at the South Shore Cultural Center in Chicago.  NHS’s partners, supporters, volunteers, and staff were present to honor the eight heroes.
