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
  • Church of the Year: Rise Christian Church
  • Department of Children and Families Partner of the Year: Rhea Gilbert
  • Better Together Staff Appreciation: Brittnie Steinmetz

Thank you to our sponsors: Gaea Landscaping Inc., Chick-fil-A — Addie’s Corner, and LadyCakes Bakery in Cape Coral. Photos by Kinfay of hopeful images.
