On March 10, 2021, Multihouse received a commendation from the County of Los Angeles for the Multihouse Engage Accelerator’s “dedicated service to the affairs of community and for the civic pride demonstrated by numerous contributions for the benefit of all residents of Los Angeles County.”
The commendation, signed by Third District Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, gave praise to Multihouse’s continued efforts in conjunction with the Multihouse Engage Accelerator member startups and non-profits to provide essential supplies directly to the unhoused and impoverished communities of Los Angeles.
"It is always a gratifying feeling to receive this kind of support from our local government, but to be recognized by Sheila Kuehl is a genuine honor. Supervisor Kuehl is more than just a role model, she is the embodiment of public service. I'm beyond grateful for her decades of tireless work fighting for the LGBTQ+ community, civil rights, criminal justice reform, and environmental sustainability. There's no glass ceiling she's unafraid to break. All of us here at Multihouse are looking forward to working with Supervisor Kuehl in the months and years ahead,” says Michael Tessler, Founder & CEO of Multihouse.
On the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Kuehl has championed initiatives in order to raise minimum wage, increase accessibility for those needing mental health or substance abuse treatment, reform the criminal justice system, protect the environment and the arts, and provide unprecedented funding for the local homeless population. Prior to her service on the Board, she was the first woman in California history to serve as Speaker Pro Tempore of the California State Assembly, and the first openly gay/lesbian person to be elected to the California Legislature.
“None of this would be possible without the kindness and generosity of Second Home, our incredibly dedicated team, and all of the amazing non-profits and startups in the Multihouse Engage Accelerator. We are looking forward to Re-Engaging real soon!” says Tessler.
