Celebration of Families Annual Award Gala

Each year Family Assistance Program recognizes everyday hero’s of our community. It is a Celebration of Families who have triumphed, some despite all odds, to the betterment of our community.   The evening is an illustration of the strength, inspiration, dedication, and beauty that all families, yours included, bring to our community.

Throughout the year we give the community an opportunity to come together and nominate an individual or family that makes a difference in the community. Each award showcases the different types of everyday hero’s in these five separate categories:


• Mentorship Award

This award is presented to an individual or family who has worked toward the betterment and success of others in the community.


• Service Award

This Award is presented to a family who dedicates time and efforts towards serving others and/or the community.


• Overcoming Adversity Award

This Award celebrates a family who has triumphed over hardship, illness, loss, or unique challenges.


• Empowered Youth Award

This award is bestowed upon youth(s) who drives change, empowers others, or achieves success despite their age.


• Extraordinary Family Award

Presented to a family who is extraordinary due to unique efforts, talents, or bond.
