Karen Liberman Award

Lit From Within was created by the Board of Directors as part of former Executive Director Karen Liberman’s legacy when she retired from the organization. Our award recognizes volunteers who demonstrate outstanding leadership, creativity, and innovation in contributing to Hope + Me’s programs and activities.

Every year, the winner of the ‘Lit from Within’ Volunteer Award receives a commemorative engraved plaque and a gift of $500.

We present this award every year in our Annual General Meeting. Keep your eyes peeled for this year’s award announcement!

Hope + Me thanks all its volunteers for
your continued hard work, passion, and outstanding dedication to achieving our vision of support, hope, and recovery. It’s a joy to work with each and every one of you!
