Last month, we hosted our 50th Anniversary Celebration to commemorate AIB’s commitment of connecting people for 50 years. We were honored to recognize community leadership of nonprofit organizations making a difference every day.

The John Houston Allen Humanitarian Award recognizing distinguished achievement by an organization or individual bridging religious, ethnic and social backgrounds was given to Caring 4 Others. This organization is committed to giving those in need a chance to live with dignity by restoring hope and providing tools and resources necessary to break the cycle of poverty and ultimately sustain an overall improved quality of life.

Interfaith Children’s Movement received the John A. Conant Community Service Award for their work supporting positive outcomes for children.

RED (Rehabilitation Enables Dreams) received the 2019 AIB Spirit Award. RED is a nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping people out of the criminal justice system through programs that enhance the social, financial and civic literacy of nonviolent youth referred to court.
