Excellence In Caregiving Awards

Excellence in Caregiving Award recipients are individuals who go above and beyond the call of duty in providing care for individuals with special needs – be it one individual or small groups of individuals in a group home setting for example. They have a direct, positive and lasting impact on those they provide care for.

Wall of Fame

Wall of Fame Award recipients are community innovators who have clearly excelled in helping the special needs community at large. These individuals will have had a dramatic and extraordinary impact on many lives.
