It aims to promote attitudes that create positive environments and allow for personal growth for both staff and persons served. Nominees are submitted quarterly and reviewed by an award committee. One award per county we serve, per quarter is awarded.

Positive Image Award recipients for this quarter are (from left) Penny England and Kit Bateman. We are lucky to have dedicated, enthusiastic staff in direct support and community employment support. They are a blessing to those with whom they work! Congrats!
