As Executive Director/Founder of the Lighthouse for Recovery Ministries and recipient of the Presidential Citizens Medal and Point of Light Award, I know the value of our volunteers who have helped and continue to support our mission, our services and programs and our special projects throughout the year.

These individuals are our unsung heroes, the backbone of our success and our friends and supporters and now we can repay all their hard work with recognition through the President's Volunteer Service Awards.
