MGA Home Healthcare’s Justin Grant Honored with Cerebral Palsy Association’s Hope Award
The Cerebral Palsy Association of Colorado Springs recently awarded Justin Grant, vice president of business development for MGA Home Healthcare, its 2018 Hope Award. Grant was just one of two recipients to receive this year’s Hope Award, which signifies a commitment to serving children who have cerebral palsy or neuro-motor disabilities.
Nominated for the award by family members of MGA Home Healthcare patients, Grant has been working to provide care and support for people with cerebral palsy since 2010, when MGA Home Healthcare opened offices in Colorado.
“Connecting with the clients and families that MGA serves has always been a huge priority for me,” said Justin Grant. “When I joined the MGA team nine years ago, it quickly became apparent that providing home health services is more than just staffing nurses. Instead, the field of home healthcare has provided me the opportunity to support families by getting involved in the community. The Cerebral Palsy Association of Colorado Springs is just one example of an amazing organization that advocates on the behalf of children and families we care about. I’m truly honored and humbled to be one of their 2018 Hope Award recipients.”
Grant was introduced to the Cerebral Palsy Association of Colorado Springs by patients and has stayed active with the association ever since. He regularly attends events such as the Ugly Christmas Sweater Run and Fishing Has No Boundaries.
“Justin is involved in so many of our community events. He shows up for the kids outside of work hours for birthday parties and days fishing on the lake,” said Cindy Valdez of the Cerebral Palsy Association of Colorado Springs. “The families he works with chose Justin as a recipient of the Hope Award because he goes above and beyond to raise awareness for the needs of people with cerebral palsy in our community.”
The Cerebral Palsy Association of Colorado Springs serves more than 230 families in southern Colorado and celebrated the recipients of the Hope Award on April 14 at the Hotel Eleganté conference and event center.
