Everyday Heroes

We’re surrounded by heroes: people who meet, and rise above the challenges of life — and make a difference. In their lives, in the lives of their families, in the life of our community. Please join us as we celebrate the accomplishments of the Everyday Heroes who have helped make the past year a success for Saginaw County Community Mental Health Authority and the greater Saginaw community.

For thirteen years the SCCMHA has celebrated Everyday Heroes by honoring consumers and their families for successes, personal growth, and participation and leadership skills as well as community volunteers and organizations who contribute to the mission and vision of SCCMHA.

This year's Everyday Heroes Banquet is being held on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 6:00 pm at Horizons Conference Center
