The Invest in Others Awards program recognizes financial advisors for their charitable work within communities across the country and around the world. The Community Service Award is presented annually to a financial advisor who has at least three years of experience making a significant contribution to a nonprofit organization through their service as a fundraiser, board member or while serving in another leadership position. Winners are selected based on their leadership, dedication, contribution, inspiration, and impact on a nonprofit and the community it serves.
Naperville Elderly Homes, Inc. (NEH) was founded over 40 years ago when a group of local citizens wanted to create affordable homes for Naperville’s elderly and disabled residents. NEH is still run by an all-volunteer Board of Directors and has helped thousands find residences and a sense of security, community, and enrichment. The organization is transforming the lives of nearly 200 lower-income adults aged 62 and older, as well as people with disabilities, annually.
Since 2006, Weeks has served on the Board of Naperville Elderly Homes, and in 2015 he was elected president of the Board. In this role, Weeks has built community support for the expansion of NEH and obtained significant government funding from both DuPage County and the state of Illinois. He has also assisted in recruiting new Board members and acts a mentor for incoming leaders and volunteers.
