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.
We invite you to watch the 2021 SHEro Awards event and be inspired by stories of our SHEro nominees and our keynote speaker, Dr. Katherine Kennedy. The event was hosted on June 5, 2021, by Women & Family Life Center, Guilford Youth & Family Services, Guilford Social Services, Madison Youth & Family Services, Clinton Human Services and Branford Counseling & Community Services.
