Laura Wallis

Laura Wallis of Ammon was recognized as the 2021 Governor Cecil D. Andrus Volunteer of the Year for her volunteer contributions in eastern Idaho. Wallis serves as an advocate for families with children with special needs, spending her time volunteering for the Region 7 Behavioral Health Board’s Mental Health Subcommittee and the Idaho Parents Network. Through her volunteer work, she helped develop the Group Respite Care Program, which provides much-needed time off for families so their children can be cared for while they get a break. She has streamlined processes to ensure that families navigating the system have support, even volunteering to speak at Idaho State University to social work students about the unique challenges families with children with special needs face.
