LACASA Center’s CAP (Child Abuse Prevention) Council and Great Start Livingston are asking Livingston County residents to consider who is a Champion for Children in our community.

Nominees may be people whose support for children and families is evident in the work they do, or, in the way they spend their extra time. The winners could be individuals who volunteer to mentor children, provide a safe foster care home, or advocate for vulnerable kids. Past recipients have been educators, coaches, public employees, foster parents, child care providers, and community volunteers.

More than one winner will be chosen to recognize the many ways the community is active in supporting children and families.
