In October, The Children’s Village received the Angels in Adoption Award presented by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute. Each member of Congress selects an awardee who exemplifies excellence in services and advocacy for adoption. CV was Senator Gillibrand’s choice for New York.
In her nomination, Senator Gillibrand wrote “From their efforts to help disconnected youth, to community outreach programs, and so much more, The Children’s Village consistently reminds the entire foster care community that the children come first. Under the careful guidance of Dr. Kohomban, The Children’s Village does an exemplary job of supporting the New York Metropolitan Area’s families and at-risk youth.”
