‘Champion for Children’ Nominations Now Open
The Great Start Collaborative and LACASA Center’s CAP (Child Abuse Prevention) Council are asking Livingston County residents to consider who is a Champion for Children in our community.
“We want to recognize the people in our community who go above and beyond to positively impact children’s lives.” said CAP Council Coordinator, Holly Naylor.
“Anyone can make a tremendous impact towards ensuring that Livingston County children grow up safe, healthy and ready to succeed in life simply by living their lives in a way that builds up children and families,” Naylor said. “We want to recognize those individuals and thank them for their dedication to our children.”
Nominees may be a person whose love of children is evident in the work they do, or in the way they spend their extra time. The winner could be someone who volunteers to mentor children, provides a safe foster care home, or advocates for vulnerable kids. Past recipients have been educators, coaches, public employees, foster parents, child care providers, and community volunteers
“Great Start Livingston is partnering with the CAP Council to recognize our Champion for Children,” said Robin Schutz, Great Start Livingston coordinator. “Supporting families and children is the focus of our efforts. With this award, we are able to acknowledge those who work tirelessly to make a difference for our Livingston County children and families.”
The person chosen as the 2018 Champion for Children will be recognized during a special luncheon in April following the CAP Council’s annual Plant a Pinwheel Celebration. All award nominees will be invited to the luncheon.
