Sorensen is one of four recipients of this year's Beautiful People Award, given to recognize the philanthropic contributions of individuals, organizations and corporations.
He will be recognized along with four other award recipients on Sunday at the Universal Sheraton.
Sorensen came to the outreach program nearly four years ago at a time when it was reorganizing its efforts under the leadership of one director in order to make more efficient use of resources.
"We've been able to expand some of the programs and reach more people," Sorensen said. "Since we brought them all together under one person it makes it much easier to coordinate."
Sorensen oversees the senior outreach program in which volunteers assist senior citizens at their homes, a school and parish nurses program, a tattoo removal program and Latino Health Promoters.
"He does it in such a laid-back fashion," award ceremony Chairman Dick Bellamy said of how Sorensen does his job. "He gives much more to it that it really requires him to do."
Sorensen is a graduate of Bellarmine-Jefferson High School and Cal State Northridge, where he continues to teach in the Health Administration Program and College of Extended Learning.
Tattoo Removal program coordinator Dimitrios Alexiou first met Sorensen five years ago when a graduate student at Cal State Northridge.
Sorensen keeps an open door to the program coordinators and has good advice, Alexiou said.
The tattoo removal program offers free services to persons with visible gang or anti-social tattoos in exchange for community service hours.
