Humanitarian Awards

In these uncertain times, one thing has become crystal clear—there is hardship in the world but humanity is up to the challenge and shows it every day through incredible acts of kindness, big and small. What better time to celebrate our city’s most philanthropic individuals and groups?


We invite you to take the Humanitarian Awards celebrations into your own home (or backyard!) for a party with your closest friends, family or colleagues.

Host a Humanitarian Awards Party!

Invite your friends, family members or colleagues over for a Humanitarian Awards Party in your home! We encourage you to make the party your own and consider celebrating a friend, colleague or family member who is doing amazing work in our community!

We can assist with selection of a theme, menu, decorations, and more—with all proceeds to benefit HumanKind’s work providing shelter, case management, and other basic needs to those experiencing poverty or homelessness in our community.

About the Humanitarian Awards

For nearly 70 years, HumanKind Ministries has brought the community together for the Humanitarian Awards to celebrate individuals and organizations doing exceptional work to help the less fortunate—everyday people going out of their way to help someone just because it’s the right thing to do. The event is also a fundraiser, raising critical funds to help HumanKind Ministries continue our important work helping the homeless and those living in poverty through our homeless shelters, low-income apartments, case management, and Operation Holiday.
