We had a wonderful time recognizing the work that is being done in our community and the progress we must continue to make in human services. Our guest speaker, King County Council member, Rod Dembowski, delved into his work on transportation, health and the Youth Action Plan. Rod's inspiring speech was followed by the award ceremony for the winners of "Volunteer of the Year" and "Volunteer Program of the Year."
Art Mabbott from Friends of Youth won the "Volunteer of the Year" award. He is a retired math teacher who volunteers with Friends of Youth and is now training other volunteers how to respond to youth in crisis around the clock as an on-call volunteer with Safe Place.
Care Day, a one-day event that offers resources to people in need, won for "Volunteer Program of the Year." Learn More »
