Community change-makers Kathy and Ed Quinn will receive the Mary McGrory Advocacy Award; and longtime St. Ann's volunteers Trudy Conrad and Luke Hester will each be honored with the Michele Heidenberger Volunteer Award for their respective volunteer service benefiting St. Ann's families.

Each year, proceeds from Hope Blossoms help St. Ann’s Center provide transitional housing and extensive support programming to families experiencing homelessness. Mothers are offered counseling, mentoring, life skills and parenting classes, opportunities for further education, and employment coaching. Children – both in residence and from the community – benefit from our on-site Child Care Center, which also includes an Early Head Start program.
