I was in Anaheim, CA last week with Rob Casalou to receive CHA’s Achievement Citation award. In addition to a cash award, CHA made a short film about the farm. It is the highest award that CHA gives to a program associated with a Catholic healthcare organization. We are honored to receive this award considering all of the other amazing programs nominated in 2013, and to see the other programs that have won over the years.
Each year, CHA’s Achievement Citation recognizes an outstanding program or service that exemplifies the ministry’s commitment to carry on Jesus’ mission of compassion and healing. The Achievement Citation is given to a CHA-member organization that is the creator and lead sponsor or partner in an original, bold, innovative program that delivers measurable results for the community served. The recipient program is selected because it inspires the sponsoring organization, the people it serves and the broader community and beyond. The program is available for replication within CHA’s membership.
