2013 TexasTrailblazer Awards

The Family Place Texas Trailblazer Award recognizes a local individual who has achieved significant success despite the obstacles faced along the way. The Trailblazer is someone who has accomplished a “first”, opened the doors of opportunity for others, and who is an exceptional role model for Texas women and healthy families. Through their accomplishments, the Trailblazer has blazed a trail for others to follow.

The Family Place Real-Life Hero Award honors an individual who works behind the scenes to create positive change for women and healthy families within our community.

The Family Place Youth Service Award and Scholarship recognizes students who are outstanding leaders in their high school communities. They have participated in The Family Place Students Be Project Program for a minimum of one year, acting as mentors to educate their peers about healthy relationships in an effort to prevent teen dating violence and sexual assault.

The Family Place Advocacy Award recognizes an organization that has played a vital role in furthering the mission of The Family Place to stop the suffering of women and children victims of family violence in North Texas. By providing generous financial and volunteer support and promoting awareness with employees, associates and peers, the Advocacy Award recipient is a strong voice speaking out for victims of family violence to improve our community’s response to their critical needs.
