Alison Hurst, executive director of Safe Place for Youth, has been named the Westchester Rotary Club’s 2014-2015 Citizen of the Year.

She will receive the award at 7 p.m. Saturday during the Westchester Rotarian Foundation’s annual fundraising dinner at the Crowne Plaza Los Angeles International Airport Hotel, 5985 W. Century Blvd., Westchester.

A Safe Place For Youth is a Venice-based resource center for homeless youth that provides food, health education, drug and alcohol counseling, clothes and employment referrals.

“It is an honor to receive this award from the Westchester Rotarians, as they do such amazing work with so many wonderful groups,” said Hurst, who in 2013 also made The Argonaut’s annual Local Heroes list.
