New Horizons Resources hosted its 28th Annual Community Leadership Award on Thursday, October 19 at the FDR Presidential Library.

Brian P. Doyle, Executive Advisor and former Executive Director of Family Services; and Steve Dambra, the recently retired pastor of Odyssey Church, were honored “for their spirit, dedication and leadership in fostering a better life for all residents of the Hudson Valley.”

Brian has been a leader in New York State human services, from developing and operating traditional service models and also developing more forward-thinking individualized supports. His nomination stated, “Brian has the ability to understand the challenges of different groups within the community and apply a wide range of human services to address them.”

As pastor of Odyssey Church, Steve Dambra created a ministry seeking to meet the ongoing needs of people with special needs and their families. It has grown over time into a community that also sponsors monthly Fun Night, Bible Studies, and mission opportunities that enable all people to join in community activities and socialize.

Ace sponsors for the event included Hudson Regional LTC Pharmacy and the Alera Group, Relph Benefits Advisors. Our Envoy sponsor was M&T Bank and our Emissary Circle sponsor was Family Services of Poughkeepsie.
