Community Impact Awards 2014 ~ Teri Gant
This feature on Father’s Heart Street Ministry kicks off a series of segments on Clackamas County Impact Award winners for 2014. Founder, Teri Gant, witnessed a growing need in Clackamas County for basic necessities and human kindness toward people living on the streets or within the margins of poverty. This prompted her to start this faith-based social services agency 15 years ago. The Community Action Board, comprised of citizens appointed by the Board of County Commissioners to help further the mission of community action, sponsors the awards.
