Addressing the gathering at the ceremony, ACS Commissioner John Mattingly said, "Without a strong group of committed and qualified foster parents, our goals for permanency would not be possible. Our teens and children need strong foster parents to stand by them and let them know everyday that they are loved and cared for. On behalf of all of us at ACS and the City, I want to express our gratitude to our foster and adoptive parents for being there for our children."
ACS Deputy Commissioner for Family Permanency Services, Lorraine Stephens thanked the honorees for their commitment to children, adding, "We hope that being here tonight has energized you to continue doing the extraordinary work that you're already doing." Stephens presented the awards to the foster parents which commended them for "extraordinary dedication and commitment in providing a young person with life's most precious gift, a loving family."
