Safe Nest's Presidential Service Award recipients


In his 2002 State of the Union address, President George W. Bush issued a challenge to all Americans to make time to help their neighbors, communities, and Nation through service. In 2003, President Bush created the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation to find ways to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our Nation. The President's Volunteer Service Award was created as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to make a difference.   

The President's Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals that have achieved a certain standard, measured by the number of hours served over a 12-month period. Levels include bronze (100-249 hours), silver (250-499 hours), gold (500+ hours) and the highest honor, the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for those who contribute more than 4,000 hours of service in their lifetime. In 2008, Safe Nest became a Certifying Organization; to date, Safe Nest has honored 166 volunteers for their service and dedication to our mission to end domestic violence in our Las Vegas community. 

Safe Nest is pleased to announce the names of our 23 volunteers who have earned the President’s Volunteer Service Award for 2015.
