This month Kinship Center facilities and offices around the state will honor staff who have reached employment milestones, as well as staff members in all employee groups.

“We are proud of the skill and professionalism of Kinship Center employees, their dedication to the children and families we serve, their loyalty to Kinship Center, and their support of each other,” said President and CEO Carol Biddle, right, at a celebration for Northern California staff.  Events for Southern California and Central Coast employees are planned for later in the month. Kinship Center has approximately 200 employees throughout California.

Shown here with Biddle and Executive Vice President Carol Bishop, left, are Nancy Murphy, center left, and Leigh Cecka, center right, who celebrated their 25th year with Kinship Center during a festive breakfast at the Salinas headquarters. Murphy directs the adoption and foster care programs for the northern part of the state, and Cecka is the support staff manager (as well as “Mom” and trainer for therapy dog Nestle). Each year employees statewide receive certificates and heartfelt thanks as they reach 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25-year milestones.

in addition to the recognition of milestones, the dedication of area support staff, direct service professionals, specialty employees, supervisors, managers and directors was cited as each employee received a thank-you bouquet. “Each one of you brings a unique skill and talent to Kinship Center, enhancing our work in a special way,” said Biddle. “For that we are very appreciative.”

A light touch and a lot of laughs were supplied by some stalwarts who led an impromptu singalong about the attributes of Kinship Center staff!
