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

“So many people in Livingston County make children a true priority in their lives,” said CAP Council Coordinator Holly Naylor. “We want to recognize someone who goes above and beyond to make this a wonderful place to grow up, and thank them for their dedication to our kids.”

The CAP Council is accepting nominations for the 2019 Champion for Children award through March 18.

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.
