2011 Recipient: National Conference for Community and Justice (NCCJ)
The mission of NCCJ as a human relations organization that promotes understanding and respect among all cultures, races and religions through advocacy, education and dialogue, exemplifies the values of the Consortium. NCCJ fulfills their mission through education of the community to build mutual respect among all people—regardless of race, culture, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic background or faith. They promote networking of all faith and socio-economic groups to promote understanding and respect across groups; they collaborate with the school system and various faith organizations throughout the community and they celebrate the successes of our youth and the community as a whole in embracing diversity.
2010 Recipient: Handy Capable Network
Barbara Davis created Handy Capable Network as a win-win-win: Her nonprofit collects used computers, saving them from landfills; trains people with disabilities to refurbish them, giving them meaningful work experience; and sells or distributes the revived computers to schools and needy families.
Handy Capable and Barbara Davis have supported Consortium member organizations by providing affordable computer equipment and technical assistance. They have outfitted entire computer labs as well as provided individual computers for our members as well as repaired numerous computers.
Most recently, Handy Capable has entered into a collaborative arrangement with the Consortium to provide an IT HelpDesk through which our members can access free technology assessments and affordable services and equipment
