Tom Nees Award for Exceptional Service

Dorothea (Dodie) Brady, president of Global Harmony Through Personal Excellence, was the 2016 recipient of Community of Hope’s second annual Tom Nees Award for Exceptional Service. This award recognizes its recipient for his or her long-standing, deeply-impacting service to the women, men, and children who turn to Community of Hope for help with housing and healthcare.

Every holiday season for the last 27 years, families affiliated with Community of Hope and volunteers from Global Harmony Through Personal Excellence have sung Christmas carols and holiday songs to the elderly at the Washington Center for Aging Services. As the group carols through the halls, the children visit the elderly and hand out homemade holiday cards. Dodie has tirelessly organized this event every year, bringing together homeless families and the elderly to spread joy and holiday spirit.
