2020 Event Schedule

STAR Awards

Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations for the 2020 STAR Awards. We know this year has been difficult and has forced many of us to reevaluate the way we work with volunteers and the public. Due to COVID-19 there were fewer nominations than expected, so we have decided to postpone this year's awards until next year. We will still recognize all of the nominees with a certificate, and keep their nominations for consideration next year. We will keep you updated on the new time frame for the awards.

Thank you so much to all the incredible volunteers and staff who have done amazing work this year to help so many families in need. During these unprecedented times, you have made it possible for our nonprofit community to keep going. You are all superstars!

United For Families Network Meetings

United for Families Network is a coalition of social service agencies, government entities, and faith-based organizations that deliver services to struggling working families in Lake County. The network provides a structured environment for providers and organizations to come together and engage in meaningful and productive dialogue about ways we can work together and partner to help better serve more families in in our communities. The network facilitates change to service delivery systems, reduces duplication of services, and creates ongoing, consistent communication among members.
