Yesterday, the Justice Center presented Code of Conduct awards to four individuals who help people live self-directed meaningful lives in their communities, free from abuse and neglect, and protected from harm.  I would like to thank you for helping us obtain the outstanding nominations that we received and since some of those who were recognized may work for agencies in your association, I thought you might like to join us in congratulating those who received awards.

The Justice Center also presented Champion Awards to individuals and organizations who have promoted the Justice Center’s mission to support and protect people with special needs and disabilities from abuse, neglect and mistreatment.
