2017 Family Champions


2017 Family Champions

Christopher Brechlin

Since 2006, the Celebration of Family Champions has become an opportunity for The Council to recognize two individuals from each member agency who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to strengthen and support families in Connecticut. 

To celebrate these family champions we first recognize that it is a person’s individual talent, skill and dedication that changes lives forever. Each of the councils 2017 champions achieved this honor in their own personal way, by demonstrating the best of what their agency has to offer, consistently giving more, reaching further, and taking bold steps to strengthen and improve the lives of families throughout our state.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
