Group gives out awards

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Lighthouse Youth Services will honor seven winners of its annual “Beacon of Light Humanitarian Award” at a dinner today at the Hyatt Regency Hotel downtown.

        Lighthouse provides programs including foster care, emergency shelter, juvenile corrections, transitional living services for older homeless youths, and in-home service for families in crisis.

        Honorees are chosen for their support of community programs and projects that enhance the lives of children and families, volunteer work on behalf of youth, and for personal qualities and achievements that make them examples for youth.

        The honorees are:

        • Claire Phillips, a philanthropic leader for many years. She supports a wide range of human service organizations and educational institutions.

        • Drs. George and Sarah Hale. Dr. George Hale is a founding member of Cancer Family Care and has been involved in charitable and educational work. Dr. Sara Hale is an educator and consultant.

        • Chad Wick, representing Knowledge Works Foundation, which has made generous contributions to the educational needs of children. It has been a strong supporter of the Lighthouse Community School.

        • Bishop Herbert Thompson Jr., head of the Episcopal Church of the Diocese of Southern Ohio. Through his leadership, the Diocese of Southern Ohio has a renewed youth ministries program and congregational growth.

        • Fran and Wayne Carlisle, philanthropists who are recognized in the business community for their support of social services. Mr. Carlisle is president of Carlisle Construction.

        Lighthouse, founded in 1969, operates the only direct access, around-the-clock crisis intervention and emergency residential service for children in Hamilton County.
