Diane Goodwin Program Coordinator, REM Ohio

The individuals who live at REM Ohio’s Michigan and University homes in Elyria, Ohio, know they have something special in their Program Coordinator Diane Goodwin. For almost 16 years, Diane has overseen her homes with a special mix of commitment, care, dedication and affection. Each year, Diane leads a camping trip for the individuals in the two homes; she organizes Halloween parties, summer picnics and bingo games; when the holidays come, several consumers look forward to sharing a meal with Diane and her family.

Watch Diane accept her 2010 Ripple of Hope Award and be honored alongside her fellow winners at the Children’s Museum in Boston, Massachusetts.
