Success Stories

People Incorporated is accepting nominations

For the past 53 years, People Incorporated has promoted the dignity of individuals and families and has helped to move thousands of people into the economic mainstream. Yet, we know that this work cannot be accomplished without the dedication, commitment, and talents of a countless number of community leaders, advocates and volunteers. To help recognize and celebrate these contributions to the communities that we serve, People Incorporated annually requests nominations for The Garland Thayer Award and The Henderson Award from community stakeholders to identify individuals and groups whose achievements embody the agency’s commitment to building futures and realizing dreams for low-income people and communities. Nominations for both awards are due by Oct. 27, 2017. Learn More
