Nominate An Everyday Hero

The Gala will honor leaders in the community who unselfishly give their time to the mission of the organization. By nominating a leader, you are acknowledging the dedication, energy, and spirit of an individual who furthers the mission of NEHA through support, advocacy or education. Nominations will remain open until Friday, October 6. Nominate a community advocate for an award here.

Remembering A Loved One

Over the last 60 years, we have lost many community members who have given endless time and support to NEHA. Please help us remember all of these remarkable individuals by submitting their names to be included in the Gala program. There is no limit to the number of names that can be submitted. Remember a late loved one for the Gala program here.


About Union Station

In December 2016, the Gala Volunteer Committee went before The City of Worcester’s Disability Council and asked for the City to waive the fee for NEHA to use Union Station (this is only granted to two (2) non-profits a year). The Disability Council voted to let NEHA use this historic and beautiful space at no cost for the event. NEHA is grateful for this partnership with the City of Worcester.
