Child Advocate of the Year Commemorative Ceremony

MCS_logo.pngApril is Child Abuse Awareness Month. This year as MCS celebrates 40 years of serving children and families in Manatee County we will be holding an open house.

Also, on behalf of the community, the James Wischer Child Advocate of the Year Award will be presented on the front lawn of Manatee Children’s Services. The award will recognize a local individual who demonstrates his/her commitment to children in an exemplary manner, much like James Wischer, a dedicated child advocate who spent his life ensuring that Manatee County children and youth were afforded a safe and nurturing environment free from abuse and neglect.
