Since 2013, Susan Powell has worked tirelessly to secure the establishment and successful operation of a Monroe County branch of Safe Families for Children. Monroe County’s poverty rate is reflected in the large population entering the child welfare system. Many families are unable to overcome hurdles that other families overcome through extended family or other supports. Acting in such a role, Monroe County Safe Families for Children is critically needed in order to keep families stable and intact. Susan brought this resource to our community through sheer determination, and she continues to serve its mission in literally every possible role, from board chair to host parent. Susan has made Monroe County happier and more stable for families and children who are struggling.
