Mrs. Huntley won a 2009 ECHO Award from The Winston-Salem Foundation.

Her bio for the award’s program states:

“Deloris Huntley has built social capital through the Alpha and Omega Family Institute.  Deloris established the Family Institute, located on Gray Avenue, to provide a place where individuals could access programs and services in their own neighborhood.  Programming includes after-school tutoring help for children, healthy cooking classes, prenatal classes, a HIV/AIDS and Young Women’s Health and Wellness conference, and a Children’s Health Fair.  Area residents, many facing huge challenges, are able to gather new information, learn new skills and ultimately learn to trust and contribute back to the community.”
