Arlene Mohler Johnson has been selected to be the 2018 recipient of the Invisible Disabilities® Association Volunteer Award. Arlene has been chosen based upon her extensive volunteerism and leadership with multiple charities serving people living daily with illness and disability. Arlene’s passion and generous support through both her time and talent have had a positive impact on so many organizations and the people they serve.
Arlene was taught the importance of using one’s talents and skills to help others. After receiving her Bachelors of Science degree in Education with a minor in Music, she settled in Denver in 1965. She taught in north Denver and Adams County schools before moving on to manage a medical practice for 20 years.
Today in addition to the Invisible Disabilities Association, Arlene is active in many Denver philanthropic circles, holding leadership positions with groups that include the American Diabetes Association, Colorado Neurological Institute, Cancer League of Colorado, Susan G Komen Breast Cancer, Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Bessie’s Hope, Denver Ballet, TAPS and Sue Miller Evening of Caring, just to name a very few.
Arlene’s expression is “Caring is my business” speaks volumes about her.
