Alvaray Antoine

The David Chow Humanitarian 2020 Award

Alvaray Antoine grew up mistrusting church and religious institutions. It was in prison that Alvaray surrendered her life to Lord. Upon her release from prison, Alvaray became a mentor and motivator to other women in prison. She assisted them with the transition back into society. With over twenty years of sobriety, Alvaray has become a role model to individuals overcoming substance abuse, homelessness, and poverty. She organized and founded God Chose Us Community Center. Her organization offers quarterly feeding programs for the homeless, clothing and shoes drives for the Dominican Republic, annual picnics for those celebrating sobriety, and mentors and assists victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation with life skills.
