Community Commitment Award

Pioneer Network & Rockport Healthcare Services Community Commitment Award

Honoring Carter Catlett Williams and Dee Collins


Pioneer Network

Is your team of staff and residents engaged in a project that supports meaning and purpose for your residents AND is this project making a difference for those individuals in your town, city, state or beyond?

If the answer is YES, then consider completing an application for the Community Commitment Award and a chance to bring members of your team to the 2018 Pioneering a New Culture of Aging Conference in Denver where your project could be recognized at the Monday general session: Creating Community: It Takes a Team!

  • This new award recognizes members of the long-term care community for their volunteer service to help enhance their communities.
  • Three teams (up to four people per team) will be selected through a competitive process co-led by Pioneer Network & Rockport Healthcare Services.
  • Each team must include at least one resident and one staff member.
  • The volunteer project must be at least six months old & must be benefiting the community (e.g. city, town, or neighborhood) of the long-term care center.
  • The three winning teams will each receive a cash award to cover registration, travel, and lodging for the 2018 Pioneer Network conference.
