In accepting the award, Judie thanked the FSS of MFSD and Metropolitan Family Services boards for nominating her, and spoke to the importance of working together in light of our recent merger.
“It takes a community of people to really make sure that victims of domestic violence are safe, and they are the champions,” she said, thanking the boards, former board, staff, and her own family for being champions of FSS of MFSD’s work in transforming lives by offering help and hope to those affected by domestic violence.
“And now I have a new family,” she continued,” and that’s Metropolitan Family Services, as we come together to really try to make a difference in the lives of victims of domestic violence.”
