The Courage to Give Back Awards

The Courage to Give Back Awards recognizes extraordinary individuals in our community. These individuals not only take on their own day-to-day challenges and personal barriers, but they make the time to give back to our community while they inspire others to do the same. We want to share their personal stories and recognize their conviction, courage and contributions. 


On Friday, February 2nd, 2018 at the Cunard Centre in Halifax our 12th annual awards celebration in support of Family SOS will take place and also kick off our celebration of 40 years as an agency! The evening will be filled with inspiring stories of those who are making a difference in our community, a round table conversation of incredible success stories of our past clients, an exciting entertainment lineup and it would not be a birthday kick off without some fun mixed in! We even have a surprise at the end of the night!   You will be able to participate in our pre-event reception with food prepared by RCR Hospitality, a delicious 3-course dinner, our balloon pop raffle, silent auction and our 40th Birthday Celebration to commence after the awards dinner. 


All funds raised through the Courage to Give Back Awards will go directly to enhancing and growing the programs and services Family SOS offers.

The Courage to Give Back Awards recognizes individuals who have shown great courage in surmounting personal hardships and have gone on to give back to their communities.


Amazing Grace Award

The Amazing Grace award is presented to a community member whose advocacy and accomplishments have significantly contributed to the well-being of families. This individual has surmounted barriers and continues to fight for what is right. Through a graceful gentle spirit and a natural inclination to bring out the good in others, the amazing grace recipient has the courage to face heart wrenching circumstances and turn it into an opportunity to better the lives of others.


Brave Heart Award

The Brave heart award is awarded to someone who has found the courage to make significant changes in their own life and inspire others with their will and dedication. Despite many challenges in their way, they persevere, overcoming obstacles and defying expectations. A Brave Heart is one that beats strongly and loudly, motivating others to be the best they can be.


Indomitable Spirit Award

The Indomitable Spirit award is given to an individual who shows true determination, conviction and dedication to the community. This person has shown courage in the face of adversity, and demonstrates what it really means to invest yourself in a cause. This individual’s passion is evident in their work, and the heart they put into each project. The Indomitable Spirit is not only a leader in the community but a force to drive change and encourage others.


Unsung Hero Award

The Unsung Hero award is presented to an individual who has made substantial and significant contributions to the community, but has rarely received the recognition they deserve. This person is a pillar of strength and support on which the community can rely, without which we simply would not be where we are today. While the unsung hero may not seek the spotlight, he or she is constantly giving back to those around them. This person's courage of kindness and positive attitude have inspired us and encourages us to ensure no good deed goes unnoticed.
