The Anne T. Jones Award for a Dedicated Volunteer 

The 25th Annual Anne T. Jones Award recognizes an extraordinary individual primarily for his/her outstanding achievements in the local community as a dedicated volunteer.


Our Special Award 

The Cecilia Montaner-Vargas Spirit of Inclusion Award 

Inspired by the vision, dedication, and indomitable spirit of Cecilia Montaner-Vargas, this award honors a person or agency that has made significant efforts to build diversity or inclusion in ways that are original, sustainable, or can be replicated by others, and/or that can be shown to have had measurable effect.  Unlike our other awards, this is not an annual award, but one that is presented whenever we believe the awardcriteria are met.

The Human Services Coalition’s Awards, to be presented at our Annual Luncheon on Thursday, February 14th, honor three extraordinary women who devoted their lives to the enhancement of health and human services in Tompkins County. All were known for their innovative ideas, thoughtfulness, and commitment.
