Helping goes a long way. Healthcare and nonprofit organizations are the epitome of caring and assisting those in need especially during these trying times. The Howard Hughes Corporation (HHC) recognizes and thanks the local institutions and organizations who tirelessly help those in need.

Through its HHCares initiatives, The Howard Hughes Corporation and its employees were able to continue to support the community:
