Helen has been a volunteer for the American Red Cross for a long time, juggling full time employment, volunteer opportunities in the community and devoting countless hours to helping clients. She has served in a variety of disaster response rolls including the Lead for Mile High Chapter disaster action teams, captain of a disaster action team, a caseworker, disaster trainer/instructor, and a member of the Graphical Information Systems (GIS) team. During the 2013 Colorado floods she spent many hours at a workstation taking emergency calls and dispatching disaster action teams.

“We are so proud of Helen,” said Christine Manson de Rabe’, a senior disaster program manager for the Red Cross Colorado & Wyoming Region. “She works hard for the Red Cross and deserves to be recognized for her commitment and sacrifice.”
