tc EileenEileen Savino, Outreach Worker at the Office for the Aging, has been honored by Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services/Better Housing for Tompkins County as this year's recipient of the Lucy Brown Award for Leadership in the Community.

Savino was honored at an INHS/Better Housing awards event April 25th.

The award is named for Lucy J. Brown, a 40-year member of the INHS Board of Directors, who has made significant and lasting contributions to both INHS and the greater Ithaca community.   According to INHS Director of Community Relations Suzanne Cerquone, the award is presented each year "to a member of our community who, like Lucy, exemplifies a similar commitment to community and neighborhood, as a voice and advocate for those who have been typically under-represented, and whose efforts have made a difference in the lives of many and consequently to the benefit of us all."

Office for the Aging Director Lisa Holmes notes, "Eileen frequently works with INHS/Better Housing, helping low income older adults make needed repairs to their homes.  She is often working with people in emergency situations— frozen pipes, no water, hoarding situations, etc.  It is wonderful that this organization with whom we partner is recognizing Eileen for her hard work and her advocacy on behalf of some of the county's most vulnerable residents."
