George Horton, Catholic Charities New York Director of the Department of Social and Community Development, received the 2013 Servant of Justice award at the Roundtable annual awards dinner held in Washington, D.C. on February 9, 2013. The Roundtable, a national Catholic association of diocesan social action directors, focuses on social action to improve the lives of the poor and vulnerable.
“George Horton uniquely combines a strong passion for justice in public policies with an extraordinary personal compassion for those in need,” Msgr. Kevin Sullivan said when he introduced Mr. Horton for this lifetime achievement award. “Catholic Charities has been blessed by George’s perspective and goodness for more than three decades.”
