Foster Care Review Board seeks nominations for annual honors

Do you know any judges or lawyers who have worked to make the state’s foster care system a better one? Then the Foster Care Review Board wants to hear about them.

The board is now accepting nominations for its annual Child Welfare Awards, in categories including “Jurist of the Year” (judges and referees), “Foster Care Worker of the Year,” “LGAL of the Year” (lawyer-guardian ad litem), “Foster Parent of the Year,” and “Parent Attorney of the Year.”

Award recipients will be recognized at the FCRB annual training conference Nov.  9 in Lansing.

Nomination forms are available online here. For more information, contact Kathy Lohr at (313) 972-3288 or
