LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The retiring President and CEO of the Home of the Innocents was honored for his service this morning.

Gordon Brown was named the 2016 Hero for the Home. The award is presented to a leader in the community who has served as an advocate for children's issues through public service.

He was honored at the organization's annual fundraising breakfast this morning.

Brown served as President and CEO for 21 years and will retire next month.

"The Home of the Innocents is a big community project," Brown said at the breakfast. "We're run by a volunteer Board of Directors, we have over 200 community volunteers and so it's not just one person or one group of people. It's the whole community."

Louisville resident Paul Robinson will be the new President and CEO.

The Home of the Innocents cares for children who are autistic, abused, neglected, or terminally ill.
