They demonstrate commitment to meeting community needs, extol virtues and skills of civic engagement and social responsibility, and align themselves with the mission and values of Family Lifeline.
- Richard P. Leedom Scholarship: Funded by Family Lifeline Board member Bill Leedom, this scholarship fund is in its inaugural year. Two participants from Family Lifeline’s early childhood programs, CHIP and Healthy Families, will receive scholarships for the coming school year. Recipients were chosen based on goals for the future, engagement within the Family Lifeline program in which they participate, and recommendations from their case workers.
- 2012 Annual Luncheon Awards: Individuals from each of Family Lifeline’s four programs will be honored at the luncheon – clients who have made great strides in CHIP and Healthy Families, a dedicated volunteer in the ElderFriends program, and an exceptional nursing aide from the Home Care program.
