Board of Child Care Core Value Award Winners

 

Board of Child Care’s core values of Safety, Empathy, Integrity, and Impact provide a solid foundation for all staff to grow professionally, personally and spiritually.  
On Wednesday, May 22, 2019, during BCC’s all staff meeting, our President and CEO Laurie Anne Spagnola presented several amazing team members who embody our core values to make a greater impact on the youth and families we serve. 
Join us as we celebrate our BCC Core Value Award Winners.

 

Safety as a mindset. We value life, spirit, and health above all else and take action to maintain the safety of our workplaces, programs, and services. We are personally accountable for our own safety and collectively responsible for the safety of our community.

 

 

Empathy will guide our programming and culture at all levels.  A supportive work and program environment mean possessing a desire to know and understand others. We recognize that with empathy we will better understand what type of care and encouragement to provide.

 

Integrity, openness, and honesty with all stakeholders make for both the best program outcomes and team culture. We, as an organization, must build trust with our program participants by being thoughtful, transparent, and committed to our decisions and promises.

 

 

Impact drives lasting change. We seek to make lasting change in the lives of those we work with by providing services that are durable, measurable, and sustainable.  We will maximize our impact by investing in staff and board development.  Feedback gathered from our entire community will enhance and strengthen our programs and their outcomes.

                       

                            

Thank you to all of our amazing staff!

Core Value Award Winner: Jessica Weeg!

Act with INTEGRITY

Openness and honesty with all stakeholders make for both the best program outcomes and team culture. We, as an organization, must build trust with our program participants by being thoughtful, transparent, and committed to our decisions and promises.

Jessica Weeg is the Clinical Supervisor at our Outpatient Mental Health Center in Pasadena. Due to her clinical focus, her assistance has been needed as we move forward with designing our EHR program. Over the last few months, the review process has greatly increased its need for dedicated time. Jessica has been more than willing to be an integral part of the review process. Even with having a clinic to run and clients to see, she continues to make time to fit in multiple EHR meetings throughout the week and while keeping a positive attitude regardless of how many trials may arise within the process. Jessica has also put in time while at home to review documents to help the EHR team meet deadlines and she continues to offer valuable feedback to ensure the final product will fit the program’s needs.

Jessica, I understand that this is a huge project that takes a lot of work. I appreciate your support and contributions in helping move this forward. Congratulations!

Congratulations Jessica Weeg!  Thank you for being BCC’s exemplary ambassador of our core value:  Integrity!
