Last Saturday night, Courtney Ng received the 2014 Volunteer of the Year award at the 14th Annual Hillcrest Gala and Auction. The Hillcrest Volunteer of the Year award recognizes someone each year who identifies a need at Hillcrest and goes above and beyond expectations to address that need.
According to Cotton Sivils, Executive Director at Hillcrest, "Courtney asked Lu Ann, our Lee’s Summit Case Manager, what she needed and actually listened. She recruited a cadre of volunteers to help with child care for all of our kiddos while their moms are in Lifeskills and Community Living classes. Courtney arranged for family members and friends from church to provide that service and free the parent up to focus on making the changes necessary to realize their dream of self-sufficiency. Her enthusiasm for the Hillcrest program is contagious, and her ability to coordinate and follow up with the childcare volunteers is fantastic. Congratulations to Courtney Ng, Hillcrest Volunteer of the year 2014!"
Kudos to Courtney for finding creative ways to live for others!
