Our “Once Upon a Time” themed fall gala brought weary souls together, many of whom were still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Sandy just days before, to celebrate accomplishments of the young people we endeavor to help. Debra Descloux accepted our Community Partner Award on behalf of the Interfaith Housing Network which is providing DMLC students and adult program participants with meaningful opportunities to contribute. John O’Keefe, Director of Devereux New York was given the FECA 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award for his long time and continuing leadership.
