In 2021, Prism Network- formerly GYCC, was thrilled to receive the Finding and Making the Good Award for their Covid Support Box Program.
During the pandemic, Prism (GYCC) received urgent requests from Covid positive community members with moderate symptoms. Local hospitals were full at the time and people were being asked to isolate or quarantine at home. Prism's Covid Support Boxes contained 14 days of supplies, including oxygen and temperature montors, and were focused on helping Covid Positive people manage their symptoms safely at home.

In February 2023, Molly Freibott who is currently the Executive Director of Prism Network, was delightfully ambushed and received the Award one more time. John Duncan, Director of Events for Prism Network and Allison Lenoker, Executive Director of CCJ (Center for Courage and Justice) lured Molly to Rafters Eleven Coffee Shop in Prescott Valley with the promise of coffee and goodies. Molly was overwhelmed to find that the Amazing Team at Finding and Making the Good had met to bring flowers, a wonderful Certificate, a Gift Card and a $250 donation to Prism Network.
Our most sincere thanks for this amazing honor and thank you Finding and Making the Good for all that you do!
