Nonprofit Excellence Award Winner!
At Project Oz, we love a chance to celebrate and share good news! On Saturday, we were honored to be chosen as the winner of the annual Nonprofit Excellence Award from the McLean County Chamber of Commerce. We are especially proud of this recognition in light of the impressive accomplishments of our fellow human services nominees.
Since the start of the pandemic, the urgency and impact of our work, ranging from 24/7 crisis response and shelter to in-school prevention and counseling, has only become more clear. The remarkable community support we enjoy is key to helping young people weather life’s storms and achieve their goals. Our efforts could not be successful without you – our amazing staff members (both past and present), board members, host home families, volunteers, and many, many friends and community partners!
Thank you for sharing in our mission “to partner with young people to build a foundation that promotes safety, opportunities, and well-being in their lives.” There’s more work to do and we’ve got big plans for the future, so stay tuned for more exciting news!
