DAC Mentor Parent Rosalio Chavoya Honored by Casey Family Programs

Rosalio Chavoya received the 2018 Casey Excellence for Children Birth Father Award. These awards recognize outstanding individuals and leaders who have demonstrated distinguished work, exceptional leadership and relentless dedication in improving child welfare in America. Award winners are selected in five categories: birth parents, alumni of foster care, foster or adoptive parents, kinship caregivers and child welfare leaders.

“It’s our absolute honor to recognize these outstanding people for advocating so strongly on behalf of children and their families, and for giving them greater opportunities to thrive,” said David C. Mills, chair of the Board of Trustees of Casey Family Programs. “These honorees are making the world a better place for children and families.”

Leo is certainly deserving of this award and we are proud to work with him at Dependency Advocacy Center.
