What a wonderful person to hear of, a good choice for the award !- she has obviously managed to make life so much better for many! wish we had more articles like this in our ADN - it can be pretty depressing to read all the bad news.

This article is so biased. There have been several families in Alamogordo that needed help with Autistic kids and she wouldn't help, or started and then dropped the ball she was too busy. She only helped the ones that benefited her. People don't really know what goes on behind the scenes unless you are a part of it. Pure BS.

Wow, anon, you have no clue what you are talking about. If there was EVER a person who deserved this award it is Barbara House. She has done more to help those with developmental disabilities in our county...not just city...than any other. You said she's only helped the ones that benefited her. That is ridiculous! Barbara works literally around the clock for all. Benefits? That's a joke! I've seen her go above and beyond the call of duty time and time again. There has NEVER been a case where she WOULDN'T help. She will do everything in her power to help. And, she has a special place in her heart for those with autism...so you either don't know what you're talking about or you are just lying. Barbara has been giving of herself for 50 years! She still works full time at her age. Her heart and soul are in all she does. Shame on you!!
