Two Washington State Programs Receive CCUSA Social Innovation Awards

Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) presented CCUSA Social Innovation Awards to programs run by two member agencies in Washington state during its Partners in Excellence Regional Gathering event taking place this week in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. New Life Homes, run by Catholic Charities Diocese of Yakima, and Vinegar Flats Community Farm, a program of Catholic Charities of Spokane, each received an award recognizing their innovative approaches to reducing poverty in their communities.

The CCUSA Social Innovations Awards recognize socially-innovative programs being run by Catholic Charities agencies in communities across the country, and come with a $5,000 prize to be reinvested into the program.

Please see the full press release to see more about these two organizations and why they each received the CCUSA Social Innovation Award.
