Nominate a Parent

The Journey Award was created by one of our founding board members, Nancy McCue. Nancy’s own challenges as a mother brought her to Family Achievement Foundation, with an immediate connection to parenting children with mental and physical health challenges.

Nancy lost her youngest son Jack in 2017 when at the age of 15 he died by suicide. Jack’s journey inspires Nancy to give back and help other families. His legacy is caring so much more for others than he did for himself, encouraging us to honor those who may not know how special they are. Thank you to Nancy and Jack for motivating us to touch the lives of other special people like you!

Journey Awards will be distributed on a quarterly basis, with the deadline for each quarter’s submission due January 1, March 1, July 1, October 1. Each quarter three winners will be selected and awarded a $500 prize based on criteria selected by a panel of judges. Nominees will be notified no later than the last day of the month following the submission deadline. Your submission will be valid only within the quarter of which you submit. You are welcome to submit another nomination should your nominee not be selected. Family Achievement Foundation board members, partners, and affiliates are not eligible to participate. Once a nominee is selected as a winner, they are not eligible to win again in the future.
