Keenan Honored as Rising Star for Stellar Commitment to A Place Called Home Youth Services Organization

August 30, 2018

TORRANCE, Calif. – Keenan, an industry-leading California insurance brokerage and consulting firm for health care organizations and public agencies, recently received the Rising Star award from A Place Called Home. The non-profit organization provides educational programs, counseling and mentorship to children and teens in the South Central area of Los Angeles.

Keenan was honored for its high level of commitment and involvement with the organization, including participation in every one of its events in 2017. Those activities included volunteering at and donating formal wear for the Cinderella/Prince Charming Project that provides high school seniors with clothing and accessories for prom and graduation ceremonies, sorting and organizing school supplies at the Back to School event, serving the community at the Thanksgiving Dinner, sorting and organizing toys for the Home for the Holidays Toy Drive, and adopting a family for the holidays.

“I’ve been volunteering with A Place Called Home since 2003,” said Keenan Claims Assistant Emily Hopton. “Then I joined their junior board, the Leadership Council, in 2017. When Keenan rolled out its volunteer-time-off program, I knew it was a great opportunity to get people involved with this wonderful organization. Like me, most employees who volunteer there fall in love.”

A Place Called Home provides after-school programs in areas such as art, education, dance, counseling, and health and wellness. It recently opened a teen center, The Bridge, across from its main campus that is also used as a new charter school called Rise High focusing on juvenile offenders, dropouts and homeless youth.
