After holding an executive level position for a local hospital system, Diane De La Santos stepped down and committed herself to serving City on a Hill, which seeks to bring transformation to individuals, families, and neighborhoods in Milwaukee's Central City. Diane took a 90% pay-cut, sold her condo, and moved into the facility so she could identify with those less fortunate. She continues to lead the effort to recruit volunteers who provide medical and social services to those most in need. For these and other countless acts of service, Diane is becoming known by many as a modern-day Mother Teresa of southern Wisconsin for her life of sacrificial giving.
For her extraordinary service as Executive Director of City on a Hill, Diane De La Santos is the recipient of the April Wisconsin Heroes Award.
