William (“Bill”) Mark

William (“Bill”) Mark is a dec­o­rated U.S. Marine Corps vet­eran who found him­self very ill and home­less in New York City. Bill moved into the Delta building, the same month Broadway Housing Communities acquired it in 1989. Now at 77 years old, Bill is healthy and employed in a lead­er­ship role on the front desk team, and will cel­e­brate his 23nd anniver­sary as a tenant of Broadway Housing Communities this summer. Bill is an avid con­ver­sa­tion­alist, an agency his­to­rian, and the epitome of healthy living. In recent years, a serious case of pneu­monia hos­pi­tal­ized him and it was uncer­tain he would sur­vive; within a week of his dis­charge, he returned to his post at the front desk. Everyone at Broadway Housing Communities heaved with relief at his return. Bill’s com­pas­sion comes in the form of wit, wisdom and com­mit­ment to ser­vice. Bill can solve any problem he encoun­ters to assist other tenants, and entering his third decade at Broadway Housing Communities, he has solved sim­ilar prob­lems mul­tiple times. Bill’s intel­lect informs his com­pas­sion, and his lead­er­ship is resilient and reas­suring. Bill’s steady atten­dance at team meet­ings, under­standing of the human dimen­sion of poli­cies and pro­ce­dures, and his unfal­tering capacity to sup­port others in need make him a valued member of Broadway Housing Communities. Compassion is fun­da­mental to the core of Bill’s iden­tity, which he has shared deftly to the ben­efit of so many at Broadway Housing Communities.
