CYS Child Advocacy Awards Luncheon



May 6, 2015

Each spring, Comprehensive Youth Services honors several outstanding individuals from our community who have championed the rights of all children in our community to grow up in safe and loving homes.  Child advocates are nominated by their peers to receive this honor.  Funds raised through the event provide counseling and other supportive services at CYS to help children who have experienced abuse and neglect heal from past traumas and lead happier, healthier lives.
