Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County was honored April 21, 2017, as the Health and Human Services Organization of the Year award by the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches.
The award is part of the Chamber’s Business Awards Breakfast held annually to recognize “the accomplishments of organizations and individuals in our community.”
“Children’s Services Council has worked to expand our reach in the community – connecting with more children and families through programs, services and outreach initiatives, and partnering with more local leaders and agencies to strengthen our collective impact,” said Lisa Williams-Taylor, Council CEO. “We are thrilled to be recognized by the Chamber for our efforts.”
Children's Services Council also was honored earlier in April when CEO Williams-Taylor received the 2017 Giraffe Award in Government from the Women's Chamber of Commerce. That award celebrates women who have “stuck their necks out” by taking risks and applying initiative, dedication and perseverance, as well as making a difference for women in the workplace and in the community.
On April 21, the Chamber of COmmerce of the Palm Beaches gave out seven awards in total, including a Business of the Year Award, a Non-Profit (Arts & Culture) of the Year Award and a Diversity Organization of the Year Award. Urban League of Palm Beach County, the winner of the Diversity Organization award, receives funding from the Council for Wyman’s Teen Outreach Program (TOP).
Congratulations to all those honored!
