2020 SHEro Awards


Celebrating inspirational women and girls…

 Every day, there are women and girls in our community that identify a need or a problem and respond by taking action to make life better for their friends, family and neighbors. We believe that their commitment to serve others and their courage to try to make a difference deserves to be recognized. On April 4, 2020, the Women & Family Life Center, Guilford Youth & Family Services, Madison Youth & Family Services, Clinton Human Services and Branford Counseling & Community Services will be recognizing these women and girls at a special awards breakfast at the Nathanael B. Greene Community Center in Guliford, CT. Please let us know about someone in our community that you feel has the qualities of a SHEro.

What is a SHEro

 A woman or girl who inspires others through her actions. She is a person who leads with kindness, has a desire to help others and is someone who is making a positive change in herself or for others in a community. She could be your friend, neighbor, a teacher or business owner.  Six nominees will be awarded a special certificate recognizing them for one of the following award categories.

* Growth Award: changed and improved their life by overcoming adversity or a crisis situation

* Community Service Award: a volunteer or pioneer of a program that created change or did something for others in a community
