Journey of Hope Awards

Each year Standpoint recognizes the passion and dedication of those who work to bring safety and justice to domestic and sexual violence victims/survivors. The work we do as change makers often goes overlooked. This award recognizes the courage and strength of these individuals and honors their on-going efforts to; provide advocacy and justice to domestic and sexual violence survivors; help build communities intolerant of domestic and sexual violence; and work to change people's lives for the better.  

This is a chance for coworkers to celebrate each other and an opportunity for Standpoint to honor passion and dedication within the field. We are honored to announce the awardees for 2018:

  • Doreen L’Allier - 360 Communities - Advocacy

  • Referee Mary Madden - 4th Judicial District - Legal Services

  • Chief Jim Hughes - Sartell Police Department - Community Service
