Better Together donors, volunteers, partners and supporters help families to overcome devastating crises and to rise up stronger than ever. On Thursday, we honored those in Lee County who have helped us lend a hand up to more than 3,400 children over the years.

While all our supporters have a vital role in our success, we recognized the following with our annual special awards for going above and beyond:

  • Host Family of the Year: James and Kelly Roedding
  • Family Advocate of the Year: Angela Grows
  • Doug Campbell Generosity Award: Bryan Blackwell
  • Community Partner of the Year: Lee County Sheriff’s Office Re-entry Team
