ADVANCING THE STATUS OF WOMEN AWARD
Diakon Child, Family and Community Ministries was presented with the Organization Advancing the Status of Women Award for its Family Reunification/Preservation Program, which encompasses not only Bucks County but also Delaware, Northampton, and Lehigh Counties.
Diakon was recognized for its work in providing in-home services to maintain youth in their original homes, which complements their mission to assure permanency for all youth who come through their various programs, whether it involves maintaining the youth at home, kinship placement, or adoption.
Fayrouz Azer, executive director of the program, accepted the award for Diakon. Previously, she served as their Director of Permanency after serving as supervisor of the reunification program in Bucks County. Diakon presents us with candidates for our Share a Dream Basket Project which provides household necessities to reunifying families in need.
