It’s Time To Recognize Unsung Heroes

Imagine dedicating your career to some of the most difficult moments in a person’s life.

Thoughts from a 2012 Caring More Award Winner

I’d like to thank Crossroads Hospice for honoring me with the2012 Caring More Award. Truly, I am humbled to have been nominated, and I’m pleased that Crossroads Hospice recognizes the many various contributions of its social workers men and women who work everyday to address to the ongoing needs of the people we serve.
