Congratulations to the June 2016 BHP Partnership Awards winners! Our Partnership Awards program recognizes the efforts of individuals, businesses, corporate partners, and non-profit and governmental agencies for their support of BHP and its mission. At the March 07, 2016 Board of Commissioners meeting, BHP staff presented awards to the following non-profit, business and volunteer partners:
Non-Profit Partner: Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA)
EFAA has provided access to basic needs and case management to many BHP seniors and families over the years. BHP residents have benefited from financial support, access to the food bank and information and referrals to local resources. Additionally, we are very excited about EFAA's role in our Bringing School Home program. Together, we will help set young children on a path to high school graduation and success.
Receiving Award: Brie Brower, Audrey DeBroux, Elizabeth Freedman and Luiz Bertolo
Non-profit Partner: Engaged Latino Parents Advancing School Outcomes (ELPASO) through The Community Foundation Serving Boulder County
ELPASO was developed by the Community Foundation Boulder County as a grassroots movement that connects Latino parents to early childhood and family resources, such as preschools, Bright By Three and libraries. This year, 29 families in Boulder County have graduated from ELPASO, four of whom are BHP residents. These families have gained new perspectives and knowledge about early childhood education. EL PASO is an invaluable asset to the community and BHP looks forward to our continued partnership.
Receiving Award: Chris Barge and Claudia Sanchez, pictured with BHP resident.
Volunteer Partner: Claudia Sanchez
As the Boulder School Readiness Coordinator for ELPASO, she conducts 1-on-1 interviews with Latino parents of 0-5 year-olds in Boulder and refers them to early childhood and parenting resources in their neighborhoods. While working with the residents, eight have completed and graduated from the EL PASO program and three have received employment opportunities. Her work with ELPASO helps to empower Latino parents and teaches them how to navigate the early childhood system.
Receiving Award: Claudia Sanchez
Volunteer Partner: Luisa Silva De Murillo
Luisa Silva De Murillo is teaching GED classes to twenty students. Of those twenty students, three of them are BHP residents and they would like to honor her for her commitment and dedication. A few comments from her students:
Even though she has been teaching for a short time she has made a positive impact on her students’ lives and has been described as an inspiration for continuing education.
