AEA Awards

AEA gives awards of recognition for Eastside human services!

The Alliance of Eastside Agencies gives individuals or organizations that have demonstrated outstanding dedication and vision in human services the recognition he/she/they ought to have. Award winners are nominated annually by AEA members.

We held our 2021 AEA Human Services Awards (Bring Your Own) Luncheon on December 10th. It was an opportunity to pause and celebrate all of the incredible nonprofit colleagues, friends, mentors, and service providers around us who have been working hard all year!

During the Luncheon, we shared a tribute video from a collection of Eastside city staff and elected officials sharing a message of appreciation for human services workers who have stepped up to serve our community in myriad ways over this last year (and beyond!). [ WATCH VIDEO ]

Thank you to our winners who demonstrated outstanding dedication and vision in the human services arena this year. Check out their nomination videos below.
