Nancy Woods is being honored at the Gala for her lifelong commitment and passion for helping homeless families. Nancy identified the dire need for a place where working families who became homeless could go for assistance. In response, she founded Fellowship House, the Emergency Family Shelter at St. Cecelia’s High School in Englewood. There, hundreds of families of every race and ethnicity were welcomed with compassion and respect.
