NPHS Executive Director named as Award Recipient


2015 Deborah Doleski Allen Champions of Children Award Recipients Announced

Deborah Doleski Allen was the executive director of the Ohio County Family Resource Network (OCFRN) and the Team Leader for the Ohio County Partners in Prevention. She began the Champions of Children Awards to honor those who work tirelessly in Ohio County, as a way to recognize their efforts while shining a light on the importance of increasing protective factors within families.
With the unexpected passing of "Deb" in late 2010, it was clear to the board membership of the OCFRN that the award should be given in her honor.
The 2015 recipients will be honored at a ceremony to be held:

Friday, April 10, 2015
