The COVID-19 pandemic has required health care professionals to be innovative in how they support those who depend on them. That’s what makes Family Service & Guidance Center’s 2021 “Making a Difference” Awards unique.
The recipients of FSGC’s 2021 “Making a Difference” Awards are:
- Clinical Staff: Roni Bauer, LCP
- Attendant Care Provider: Sarahy Colorado-Castillo
- Supervisory Staff: Robyn Finckbone, Psy.D.
- Mental Health Specialist: Katie Hazelwood
- Support Staff: Dannette Jackson
- Case Manager/Care Coordinator: Arianna Zamora Quintana
“All 260 of our amazing staff were asked to do more and do their jobs in new and creative ways in 2020,” said Brenda Mills, Family Service & Guidance Center CEO. “Selecting just one person from each area of our organization was very difficult, but a few individuals provided a remarkable level of service throughout the year. These awards recognize those outstanding staff members.”
Awards are given annually in six staff categories. Employees were nominated by their peers and selected by a committee of FSGC staff members representing a diverse cross-section of the agency.
Recipients of the award are selected for effectiveness in their work with children, families and co-workers; zeal in promoting the advancement of mental health; and professional interest and involvement.
Family Service & Guidance Center is a nonprofit community mental health center that serves approximately 12,000 northeast Kansas children, adolescents and families each year with a full range of mental health care services to treat anxiety, depression, ADHD and other common mental health issues.
