There was an awards ceremony for people who have come from public housing and succeeded on Sunday afternoon.

The event is sponsored by the National Public Housing Museum.

Among those honored was actress Victoria Rowell.

The museum itself is scheduled to open next year in the last remaining building of the Jane Addams homes.

It will be dedicated to the experience of those who grew up in public housing.
