Sometimes, we are lucky enough to create astounding relationships with incredible people we meet, every single one of the families we serve has a story to tell, and there is power in their story. The May Family story at Woodlawn begins all the way back in 1974 and we are thrilled and so proud of Charles May Jr for accepting this distinguished award with grace.  Mr. May is part of our Woodlawn Family and we thank him for his incredible service to his country and community. 

We hope you'll take a moment of your day to watch this video and be inspired by his work.
