This year's recipient – Christie Sosebee – suffered the loss of two of the triplets that she gave birth to thirteen years ago. Since then, this single mother has worked diligently to be able to provide for her daughter and keep her once dream home intact. She was nominated by her sister in law, Joan Weaver, and her cousin, Andrea Skriba for her resilience and determination to work hard and do whatever it takes to provide for her family.

Sosebee received new energy-efficient appliances and a bill credit from Cobb EMC, two years of free natural gas service from Gas South, new low-flow faucet adapters, showerheads and toilets from the Cobb County Water System and Hearing Plumbing, and a new HVAC unit, water heater, insulation, smart thermostats, and other energy efficiency improvements from  the Cobb Heating and Air Conditioning Association, Quality Air Systems, E.
