Child and Family Advocate of the Year Award

Call for nominations!

The mission of the HOPE Collaborative is to promote the safety of children and prevent abuse and neglect in Riverside County.  The Hope Collaborative accomplishes this mission through the coordination and facilitation of interagency collaboration; efforts to raise community awareness; education and training of professionals, parents and the community; services to child abuse victims and families impacted by abuse and neglect; and advocacy efforts influencing public policy.  In their second annual recognition dinner, the Hope Collaborative will be recognizing outstanding advocates from the community who have influenced the lives of Riverside County’s children, youth and families.

The nominee may work in/advocate for early childhood, child welfare, education, child health, youth development, mental health or juvenile justice. The nominee should demonstrate exemplary leadership in child advocacy as a representative for the interests of children and their families. They may advocate on a large systems level or be an advocate for specific children within our county. Nominees will be evaluated in the following areas:

1.   How have they demonstrated support/advocacy for children and families?

2.   How long have they been involved in their efforts?

3.   How do their efforts impact the larger community?
