Woodside on the Move’s director of housing services Maritza Munoz was chosen as a 2018 New York State Senate Woman of Distinction.
She was selected for the award by State Senator Michael Gianaris.
“I have spent my career working to make the lives of my neighbors better, from the students I taught to my neighbors in Woodside,” Munoz said. “Our community has so much potential, and when good people work together, we can unleash the power of our neighborhoods.”
Munoz has served as director of housing services since 2008, where she leads the affordable housing portfolio. She helped launch a housing legal clinic, establish a walk-in legal counseling program and leads Know Your Rights workshops.
An alumna of the University of Guayaquil-Ecuador, Munoz previously worked as a teacher of all grades.
Munoz will head to Albany on May 1 to be recognized for her achievement.
