Lenore Cabral

2017 Dedication Award - Greater Toronto

Manager, Community Support Programs

VHA Home HealthCare

Nominator Comments:

Lenore is the longest-serving management staff person at VHA Home HealthCare — a place she’s worked at for almost 30 years.  Lenore is a powerhouse when it comes to helping others.  As a supervisor to social work students, she’s also been known to mentor as many as three students at one time! You can also count on Lenore in a tough situation; she’s known for her calm demeanor and ability to come up with solutions during challenging times. These skills have likely come in handy over the years with her volunteer work as a crisis line response counsellor, a board member of a youth shelter and a phone counsellor for an assault hotline.

To quote her nominators: “Lenore is a tremendous asset to VHA Home HealthCare. She’s very competent and compassionate, with a wealth of experience that she gladly shares. She is deeply committed to the social services sector.”
