The H.O.P.E. Award for Lifetime Achievement 2020/2022

In 2014, The Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley introduced the H.O.P.E. Award for Lifetime Achievement. It is presented to an individual who is: Honorable. Outstanding. Philanthropic. Excellent. This prestigious award was first presented to Henry Nemenz for his many decades of donating time, money and resources to improve the quality of life of children and families in our community.

Over the years, we have received numerous nominations for this great award. The meaning of this award has been an impact on our award recipients, so we are expanding this great award to recognize more individuals. We will announce an overall award winner that night, but also honoring a group of honorees, which we will choose the winner. This is a meaningful way to show that there are great people in the community and we want others to follow in their footsteps.
