The Salvation Army of Pasadena recently held its 53rd annual “Others” Award Luncheon honoring Families in Transition. The “Others” award is given to institutions or individuals who have been outstanding examples of devoted service to the community. Eric Alvarez accepted the award for FIT along with Socorro Naranjo-Rocha and Martha Jimenez.
The annual Others Award ceremony was a resounding success. The Office of Families in Transition is the homeless student assistance program of Pasadena Unified School District. The program ensures that all PUSD homeless students receive equitable access to high-quality education and support services.
