Halbert Sullivan: 2017 Nonprofit Executive of the Year
Since its inception in 1997, the center has served more than 14,000 fathers and their families, transitioning nonparticipating fathers to a position of involvement in the lives of over 40,000 children.
At the start of every program, Sullivan shares his past with the fathers. On July 27, he celebrated 24 years free of the “horrors of addiction,” he said.
“My experiences are deeply imbedded in the methods and strategies that we do in this program,” Sullivan said. “You got to get honest about your situation. You have to accept that you did this; no one did it to you. You got to get started. You can’t keep waiting on tomorrow.”
On Friday, November 17, Halbert Sullivan, founding president and CEO of Fathers’ Support Center, received the 2017 Nonprofit Executive of the Year Award at the St. Louis American Foundation’s Salute to Excellence in Business at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis.
