NHS Human Services Foundation to Host 10th Annual Leading the Way Awards Gala

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 17, 2013

NHS Human Services Foundation will host the 10th Annual Leading the Way Awards Gala at the Sheraton Valley Forge Hotel in King of Prussia on Saturday, November 23, 2013. The black tie event celebrates one of the nation’s leading community-based human service organizations and its work providing assistance to children and adults in the areas of mental health, addictive diseases, developmental disabilities, autism, juvenile justice, therapeutic foster care and education services for more than 40 years.

“NHS Human Services has a lot to celebrate at our gala,” said M. Joseph Rocks, chairman and CEO of the organization. “We are nationally recognized for ‘leading the way’ in providing important support services. In addition, we will be honoring two organizations for their dedication, compassion and inspiration to those we serve.”

The Fran Egan Courage Award will be presented to Germantown Recovery Community whose members participated in the documentary film project Hollywood Beauty Salon by openly sharing their personal journeys of recovery, providing encouragement and helping educate people about mental illness.

“The courage and bravery exemplified by ‘Hollywood’ and others who shared their personal stories in the film will go a long way to help reduce the stigma associated with mental illness,” said Frank Guthridge, executive director of NHS Human Services Foundation. “The film takes an honest look at the struggles and triumphs of individuals coping with mental illness. Their determination is an inspiration to all.”

Independence Blue Cross (IBC) has been selected as the recipient of this year’s Leading the Way Award in recognition of the healthcare company’s impact in the human services field, changing the way healthcare is delivered, while maintaining the health of their members and contributing to the overall well-being of the community. CEO Dan Hilferty will accept the award on behalf of the healthcare company.

“It is truly an honor to recognize Dan Hilferty and Independence Blue Cross,” said Rocks. “None have embraced the NHS mission like IBC. The many leadership roles Dan has taken on have been an inspiration to me and our team at NHS. Through our continued partnership and goal to provide services to our members, IBC has been there every step of the way and we have enjoyed growing with them over the years.”

The NHS Human Services Foundation is the charitable arm of NHS Human Services, one of the nation's largest providers of human services. Through its fundraising activities, the Foundation enables NHS programs a chance to provide the highest quality of care to all consumers despite public funding cuts and the stressed economic climate. The Foundation subsidizes where funding falls short, in an effort to provide seamless, uninterrupted care for the individuals who depend upon NHS services.
