Humanitarian Awards

HAB event page section header

For more than 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, Operation Holiday, and more.


The 2021 Humanitarian Award will be held on Saturday, August 21 at downtown venue Brick & Mortar. Tickets are $150 and tables are $2,000. Details about how to purchase tickets and tables will be released soon.


The 2021 benefit will honor four remarkable award winners and includes a special award for ingenuity and compassion for at-risk populations during COVID-19. We hope you will join us in celebrating our award winners:
