The Celebration of Family Champions - 2016
Diane Manning, Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies Board Chair; Edward J. Tessman, Catholic Charities Executive Director; Carole Gilbert, 2016 Catholic Charities Family Champion Staff Member; Angela Arnold, 2016 Catholic Charities Family Champion Board Member; Joette Katz, State of Connecticut Commissioner Department of Children and Families; Alyssa Goduti, President & CEO Connecticut Council of Family Service Agencies
The Celebration of Family Champions has become an opportunity for The Council to recognize two individuals from each member agency who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to strengthen and support families in Connecticut.
To celebrate these family champions The Council first recognizes that it is a person's individual talent, skill and dedication that changes lives forever. Angela Arnold and Carole Gilbert achieved this honor in their own personal way, by demonstrating the best of what their agency has to offer, consistently giving more, reaching further, and taking bold steps to strengthen and improve the lives of families throughout our state.
