Leslie Wolf of ITNCoastalCT honored by the Elizabeth Roberts Award

September 20, 2010

Leslie Wolf (President of ITNCoastalCT) received the Elizabeth Roberts Award at the annual United Way of Coastal Fairfield County Celebration on Wednesday, September 15, 2010. The award is given to an individual whose commitment as a volunteer has served the Greater Westport Community in Connecticut.

Leslie Wolf became involved with ITNCoastalCT while doing volunteer work for the Westport Department of Human Services. After attending meetings about the transportation challenges faced by seniors, she joined a group of fellow community volunteers to tackle the issue on how to provide options for seniors. Realizing the need for this service and how a solution would improve the quality of life for seniors, Leslie became committed to making the ITNCoastalCT senior transportation program a reality. With Leslie’s leadership and the commitment and hard work of many, the ITNCoastalCT will be launched this year! In addition to her commitment to ITNCoastalCT Leslie is involved in the community through PTA, sports teams, Norwalk Grassroots Tennis, Staples High School Tuition Grants Committee, and the Westport Department of Human Services. She and her husband have three sons and a daughter ages 17 – 27. They have lived in Westport for 15 years. The most rewarding aspect of this project for Leslie is the opportunity to be part of a long lasting change in the way we age in our communities – mobile, independent, and healthier. “We’re dealing with a vulnerable population stuck in their homes and they should be able to go where they want to go, as well as where they need to go. This program allows seniors to be connected to the community, remain active and stay healthy longer. I have learned so much and the relationships and connections with the wonderful people I have met and work with are what keep me involved.”
