The Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes people with a long history of volunteering for HAC. Past recipients include Dolores Bommer and Joan Ledwith.
The Presbrey Public Service Award was created to honor HAC founder Rick Presbrey for his years of service to the Cape community; his public service, both as a professional and a volunteer, in advancing the well-being of Cape residents, primarily in the area of affordable housing; and the spiritual values that give meaning and purpose to all that he does. The award is given to people in the community who most exemplify the qualities and values that motivate Rick. Recent recipients include Rabbi Elias Lieberman, Rep. Matt Patrick, Mark Forest and Dr. Kathleen Schatzberg.
The Business Partner Award was created to recognize exceptional contributions from a business that furthers HAC’s mission to provide safe, stable and decent housing. Past recipients were Shepley Wood Products, Cape Associates, the NOAH Advisory Committee and the Valle Group.
The Human Service Partner Award recognizes a group or individual that has made a significant contribution in assisting HAC clients. Past recipients were Horizons for Homeless Children, Annie Lyles and Chris Austin.
