2011 Ripple of Hope Winner: Lucas Lawrence

Lucas Lawrence started in a direct support role at REM's Eighth Street house in Marion, Iowa in 2007 before becoming its Program Nurse last year. According to his colleagues, he quickly became a role model to the residents, a group of active young men challenged by severe and profound intellectual disabilities, and wears whatever hat he needs to so they can succeed. Hear more about Ludas' passion for helping others as The Network congratulates him during the 2011 Ripple of Hope Award ceremony.
