Chen Hsu, parent of Michael Hsu, a member of the New Horizons YMCA program for adults with developmental disabilities, should be nominated, because of her courage and dedication to volunteer for our program. Chen Hsu, helped to start volunteer opportunities in New Horizons when she asked if there were any opportunities for her son. When she asked, none were available. Shortly after that program staff looked for opportunities that could be shared with program families and the program members. At the moment there were none and over time opportunities were created so that Chen could include her son Michael in volunteering. Through this act she showed her son about what volunteering was and also helped our organization.
