Child Welfare Appreciation Week: DISC Villages Lizzy Chandler

Lizzie Chandler is exceptional for child welfare for many reasons. Unfortunately, a paragraph won’t do her justice!  Lizzie always makes the greatest of efforts to help those within her child welfare role, and those beyond her role. Lizzie genuinely cares for the safety and well-being of the children we serve and takes on case management and family support worker roles when needed. 

Lizzie remains available on weekends and after hours, while displaying a great willingness to help beyond normal work hours and beyond her role at work.  Lizzie is very valuable to her team and exceptional to the child welfare- not only this week, but everyday. 

Lizzie: we hope you feel appreciated and we thank you for being so special!
