Cristina Molina, Previous Executive Director of Elves Special Needs Society, was award the 2011 City of Edmonton Mayor’s Award in the category of Outstanding Service. Cristina has her Masters in Social Work and was Elves’ Executive Director for over 20 years before she retired in 2013.
In 2007, Elves was honoured with the Mayor’s Award for Universal Design in Architecture. The award was presented to Elves for the addition to its Adult & Youth Centre. The building design was effectivly equipped and functional for persons with disabilities.
This award demonstrates both our fiscal effectiveness and our great community support. The volunteers who generously contributed their time and expertise to the facility were one of the key factors in the success of this project. This is a great example of some of the many ways the community has reached out to support our organization.
