Osborne Association Receives National Recognition

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

This morning, Elizabeth Gaynes, Executive Director of the Osborne Association, was honored by the White House as a national Champion of Change for her dedication to supporting children, caregivers, and families impacted by incarceration. The Osborne Association, a Roadmaps to Health community grantee, has an 80 year history of leadership in working with currently and formerly incarcerated adults, as well as children and families affected by the incarceration of a loved one.

In addition to panel discussions and celebrating outstanding leaders, the event also launched a recent collaboration between the Osborne Association and Sesame Workshop to create interactive resources to help children of incarcerated parents.

The Osborne Association’s work illuminates what the Roadmaps to Health Community Grants are about—groups creating positive changes that address the social and economic factors that impact the health of people in their community.
