AHEPA mourns the passing of Chairman Emeritus of the AHEPA National Housing Corporation Nick M. Stratas, who passed away March 22, 2018.  He was 85.  Brother Stratas was a 41-year member of the chapter that proudly bears his name, Nick M. Stratas Chapter 310, Mobile, Ala.

“A pillar of the Greek American community, Brother Stratas unselfishly devoted his time and energy giving back to the community at-large, most notably through his decades of leadership guiding AHEPA’s successful affordable housing for the elderly program,” Hollister said, adding that Brother Stratas served as a mentor to him. “Brother Stratas was an exemplary Ahepan, who served the Order faithfully and passionately, and cared deeply about his Hellenic roots.  Our deepest sympathies are with his wife, Mary “Titsa,” and the entire Stratas family. May his memory be eternal.”

 

In 2017, Brother Stratas received the AHEPA Lifetime Achievement Award for his instrumental work with the AHEPA National Housing program from its inception and for his philanthropic support of Penelope House, the first domestic violence shelter in Alabama.  He helped bring to fruition AHEPA 310 Apartments in Mobile, Ala., which opened in 1985.  He served as president of AHEPA of Mobile, Inc., which developed 13 elderly housing properties throughout greater Mobile that are administered under the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Section 202 program.  In addition, Brother Stratas served as president of AHEPA National Housing Corporation (ANHC) from 1983 to 2009, and again, 2010 to 2012. The AHEPA National Housing program has grown to include 95 HUD 202 properties in 21 states.
Brother Stratas was also an integral contributor to the Greek American community of Mobile’s construction of Hippocrates Park, which is located by the Medical Sciences and Health Sciences buildings at the University of South Alabama. Nick M. Stratas Chapter 310 donated the statue of Hippocrates that stands in the park.
