Meet the 2014 Hope Awards Dinner Honorees

Thirteen years ago, Calvary Women’s Services created the Hope Awards to recognize individuals who offer hope, inspiration and empowerment to women in need. Past Hope Awards have honored women like NPR’s Diane Rehm,  entrepreneur and philanthropist Sheila Johnson, television journalist Katie Couric, and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, and we’re thrilled to announce this year’s honorees!
