In Our Community

Homeless Jesus Award 
For Exemplary Leadership in Community Service

Philanthropy is one of Canada’s greatest attributes at individual and corporate levels.
To encourage this generosity, we were inspired to recognize individuals and businesses that quietly and positively affect marginalized individuals, groups, and communities that are in the shadows and missed by the larger philanthropic efforts.
Generous with their time and talents, they bring light and life to many incredible charitable and community endeavours. Recognizing these individuals for their valuable contributions is an essential part to inspire others to follow suit and make our world a better place to live.
For the specific recognition we wanted to convey, we looked for an award that conveys the meaning and purpose of the award in its own right. The usual array of glass and metal works of art were “message neutral” and were not up to the task. In the end, however, we found a sculpture that fit perfectly: the “Homeless Jesus”. Learn More
