Corazón CEO Ariel Kelley was just named the 4Cs Sonoma “Strong Families” Champion for Children for 2019. The 4Cs mission (short for The Community Child Care Council of Sonoma County), is to provide access to quality child care and early education in Sonoma County through advocacy, direct service and empowerment.
For this annual award, 4Cs convenes an independent Selection Committee made up of local business and community leaders to review nominations of stellar community members who live or perform work on behalf of children in Sonoma, Marin or Napa County.
Awards are given in six categories. The Strong Families award recognizes the top nominee who engages the whole family to support children. All six 2019 Champions for Children award recipients will express the values and principles of the 4Cs five protective factors for families: Parental Resilience, Positive Social Connections, Concrete Support in Times of Need, Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development, and Social and Emotional Competence of Children.
Ariel and her fellow award winners will be recognized at the Champions for Children award ceremony on November 8, 2019 from 11:00 AM-1:30 PM at the Santa Rosa Golf and Country Club.
