Award for Excellence In Community Outreadh and Advocacy
To: GVNA HealthCare, Inc.
For: The Face of Home Care on the Street
"GVNA HealthCare's Community Services Center is a beacon of hope in their region for the homeless, hungry, and socially isolated. As other regional programs have closed, the GVNA Center has ramped up its work in substance abuse and addiction services supports, inclusive of the only regional program with a 'drop in' component. With food and nutrition a serious issue for their clients and community, GVNA added a food pantry to their offering –they are now servicing close to 3000 individuals and more than 500 families. With need growing every day, GVNA staff conducted their own food drive and donated more than 400 pounds of food."
