Since 1982, Heartland Family Service has celebrated its annual Salute to Families Awards. They honor four southwest Iowa families and four Nebraska families for their efforts to make a difference in the categories of Community Service, Leadership, Challenged and Successful, and Commitment to Family. The families were nominated by the public.
The event for the Iowa families was held Nov. 14. Four Nebraska families will be saluted Thursday at the Happy Hollow Club in Omaha, when a Family Week Advocacy Award also will be presented.
