This year’s IMPACT Awards focus on organizations that have demonstrated a commitment to raising awareness and improving mental health outcomes in their community. AHM Youth and Family Services has a 36 year track record as a non-profit charity committed to the social and emotional well-being of Andover, Columbia, Hebron and Marlborough children, teens, young adults, families and seniors. The agency provides a wide range of mental health, drug prevention, juvenile justice, youth and family development programs. 

According to the Red Sox Foundation website: “As the spread of COVID-19 continues to strain non-profit organizations across New England, the Red Sox Foundation will not waiver from providing the 6th Annual IMPACT Awards presented by the Ruderman Family Foundation. The awards provide Red Sox fans with the opportunity to nominate their favorite local non-profit organization for the chance to win one of several grants totaling $75,000 distributed through the Red Sox Foundation. Given the widespread impact of COVID-19, the IMPACT Awards will be available to non-profits in all six New England states in 2020 to ensure as much support and funding to organizations in need during this crisis. Additionally, given the pandemic’s vast effect on mental health, the IMPACT Awards will this year focus on organizations whose mission includes raising awareness and improving the mental health outcomes of individuals in their community “ 

According to AHM’s Executive Director Tressa Giordano: “The nomination of AHM, as a public charity worthy of this honor for an Impact Award from the Red Sox foundation, is both humbling and exciting. Out of all the nominations received, the Red Sox Foundation chose AHM as one of the five finalists in Connecticut to be considered for this award. We are an incredibly worthy company with the other candidates in our state nominated for this award!” Please show us your support by voting for AHM here!
