For innovative programming that changes lives

Each year, CHA's Achievement Citation recognizes an outstanding program or service that exemplifies the ministry's commitment to carry on Jesus' mission of compassion and healing. The Achievement Citation is given to a CHA-member organization that is the creator and lead sponsor or partner in an original, bold, innovative program that delivers measurable results for the community served. The recipient program is selected because it inspires the sponsoring organization, the people it serves and the broader community and beyond. The program is available for replication within CHA's membership.

The recipient of the 2019 Achievement Citation will be announced on Monday, June 10, 2019, during the Awards Banquet. Please register now to join us in Dallas to celebrate all of our award honorees!
