BROOKINGS – In honor of May being Mental Health Awareness Month, Friends of Brookings Empowerment Project presented an appreciation award to Sarah (Sally) Hillner on April 30.

Hillner was instrumental in forming and getting nonprofit status to BEP in 2007. The initial purpose of the group was to provide housing for persons with severe and persistent mental illness, who reside in the Brookings area.
