HYS Staff Win at 3rd Annual Youth Work Awards

HYS Staff Win at 3rd Annual Youth Work Awards

This morning, UnifiedErie celebrated 29 "boots on the ground" Youth Workers who were nominated for the 3rd Annual Youth Work Awards. Harborcreek Youth Services was proud to receive nominations for Multi Systemic Therapist Mary Luce, Therapeutic Foster Care Therapist Tyler Titus, and Childcare Worker Brian Imler. Every nominee was recognized with a medal, and Mary was also awarded the "24/7 Award" for her around-the-clock dedication to our community's youth and families. 

Mary was nominated for her award by her MST Supervisor, Norm Stanford: "...Mary does whatever it takes to help keep families together. She is quickly able to engage families but then demonstrates for them that they have to do whatever it takes to keep their child in their home. When families need her to help go door to door to help find a youth who left home without permission, Mary has demonstrated for parents how to do this, at any time of the day or night. When families lost phone connectivity, she has driven to the home at all hours of the evening to follow up with parents whether she planned this in advance or not. This might give the impression that she is reliable, responsible and trustworthy...not only to the MST model but also with the families that she provides service to. The part about Mary that makes her worthy of such an award is the fact that every family she works with and for is treated as if they were members of her own family..."

Congratulations to all the nominees and to our amazing staff members!
