I am always proud of the quality and commitment of all our staff, who do so much for so many people. Too many times they do not get the individual recognition they deserve for what they do, whether it be here at the office helping someone or in someone’s home or school!
With this in mind I am pleased and proud to let everyone know that Brenda Wendling, our Director of Adult Services, was recently honored by the Social Work Leaders in Health Care of Metro St. Louis with their Social Worker of the Year Award! Well deserved for an outstanding person and professional. Congratulations Brenda, and Thank You!
