The Spirit Mountain Community Fund awarded Lisa Judd, Family Support Specialist at the Annie Ross House, with the yeʔlan lima (or “Helping Hand”) award in recognition of her years of hard work and dedication to families struggling with homelessness.
Over her long tenure at NHA, Lisa has touched the lives of hundreds of families over the years, some of whom directly trace their success back to Lisa’s guidance during their stay at the shelter. Lisa has played a key role in modernizing the Annie Ross program through the various changes in evidence-based sheltering and case management that the field has witnessed through the past two decades. Despite the incredible impact that Lisa has had on peoples’ lives over the years, she remains a humble, diligent, and dedicated advocate for families experiencing homelessness.
“I feel overwhelmed and honored,” Lisa said. “It’s because of all of the people here at NHA that I can do this work.” Lisa’s breadth of knowledge inspires her colleagues to be mission-focused and dedicated. We are so proud of Lisa and all the great work she has done to make a difference for families over the years.
