"Every human being has something to do and that something to do
is not just for them, but its to make a difference in the world."
-- Ken Cohen
This honoree is not only an amazing volunteer but also quite the wordsmith as you can tell by that quote. Those who know him call him a superhero to the people with developmental and intellectual disabilities in South Hampton Roads. Over the past 25 years hes worked on behalf of Hope House Foundation - volunteering more than 250 hours per year. His efforts are described as critical to every hope house fundraising event. He does it all - from setting up tables to coming up with creative ways to bring more money to the fundraisers-especially the Stockley Gardens Art Festival. He is also involved and committed to other organizations. He's the Treasurer of Nautical Adventures and the Jewish War Veterans Monument Fund. He has also been an active volunteer for the American Diabetes Association and St. Judes Childrens Research Hospital. Not even dealing with the pain from a serious back injury or the grief from the death of his father could keep him from his mission to advance the cause of those in need. His unwavering commitment to make a difference in the world, makes Ken Cohen one of WAVY-TV's 10 Who Care.
