INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis Colts are proud to announce Helena Osak, a Greenfield, Ind. resident as a 2013 honoree of the Colts Anthem Angels program, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. Helena will be recognized at the Colts home opener this Sunday, September 8, 2013, for her outstanding contributions to the community.
Helena Osak has worked with patients battling substance abuse and/or mental health illnesses for more than 20 years and is currently working for Gallahue Mental Health in Greenfield. Throughout her 20 years in the mental health field, Osak has made a power impact on countless patients by dedicating herself to the cultivation of her patients' interests to promote recovery from their addiction and mental illness. With her time off the clock, Helena truly exemplifies her devotion to her patients and her community as a whole.
Osak has always been known as someone who is willing to go the extra mile to help her patients accomplish their dreams and goals, even after working hours. For example, she uses her own money to fund her patients' activities that support their recovery and is even willing to drive them to said activities during her free time. Osak continually devotes herself to creating an environment for her patients where they can learn and be engaged as they focus on the positive outcomes in their recovery and future.
"Anthem Angels…Honoring Everyday Heroes" was established by the Indianapolis Colts and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield to pay tribute to Hoosier "First Respondents" who may have received little or no recognition for the strides they have made to help others in human-service related professions.
In honor of Helena's heroism, she will receive four (4) VIP Club Seat Tickets to the Colts game, a feature story with her photo in the Colts gameday magazine (the Scout) and on www.colts.com, as well as on-field recognition at the game.
Nominations are currently being accepted for upcoming 2013 home games. For more information about Anthem Angels, presented by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, please visit: www.colts.com/anthemangels.
