betty award 2016

Cindy Clohessy accpets the 2016 Family Legacy Angel Award on behalf of the Lowell S. Dunn & Betty L. Dunn Family Foundation

Betty’s ongoing support and gracious generosity has allowed NOA to accomplish so many things this past year, we have been able to purchase a transport van for shelter residents, update and remodel

many of the rooms at our emergency shelter,and add a children’s therapy and play room.  She has been our number one supporter for over 15 years. We consider Betty Dunn our NOA angel.


al award

Al Chang


This year NOA assisted 116 victims and their families with Legal Advocacy and Protective Orders.

With limited legal grant funds it is a challenge to retain attorneys for all of our clients. Al has been working hand in hand with

NOA for 14 years in providing those important services.  He has represented countless clients over the years in a professional,ethical and knowledgeable manner. As a result of his commendable dedication to our program, he has contributed many hours of Pro Bono legal assistance which is very much appreciated, not only by NOA, but by our clients as well.
