Janet Nickels Flagler County’s Human Services Program Manager and Pastor Charles Silano of Grace Tabernacle Ministries were recognized by the Flagler County Commission for their work with Access Flagler First and for being this year’s recipients of the June Heister Award from the Volusia Flagler Coalition for the Homeless.
The Coalition Board voted to recognize Access Flagler First as the organization that has the greatest impact on the prevention and intervention in homeless this year in Flagler and Volusia counties.
Access Flagler First is a monthly event that brings agencies serving residents together with the families and individuals that may qualify for their services. It also offers a wide range of services including food and clothing.
The program outgrew the auditorium at the Extension Service on Sawgrass Road and has moved to the Cattleman’s Hall at the Flagler County Recreation Area at 650 County Road 13. Access Flagler First is the first Friday of every month from 1 to 4p.m. It is free and open to the public.
The June Heister Award is an annual award established in honor of June Heister who bequeathed her estate to recognize organizations that help to end homelessness in Volusia and Flagler counties.
