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!

Abbey is one of our treatment support specialist at the West Virginia Campus. She works very closely with many of our youth. She is very supportive and dedicated to helping youth work through their issues. Recently, one of them was having a hard time dealing with a trauma that he experienced as a child. Abbey was driven to figure out the best way to support him in his time of need. She did not hesitate to seek guidance to ensure that the youth was receiving the most appropriate treatment. Her ability to show empathy towards this youth made it easier for him to communicate with her, which helped create an open space of communication to process his thoughts.

Abbey, I thank you so much for being attuned to the needs of our youth. Congratulations!

Core Value Award Winner: Tayler Baker

Listen and respond with EMPATHY

Empathy will guide our programming and culture at all levels. A supportive work and program environment means 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.

 

Tayler Baker is a therapist at our Falling Waters campus. She works very closely with many of our youth and has shown herself to be a supportive role in their lives. Recently, a youth was struggling to cope after receiving news that his grandmother, who happens to be his closest relative, was in the hospital with rapidly failing health.  Tayler made herself emotionally available to help the youth process and she immediately tried to figure out a solution that would allow the youth to be transported to the hospital that was 6 hours away to visit. Unfortunately, the youth was not able to make it time before their grandmother passed. However, Tayler rearranged her schedule to take him to an overnight visit with his grandmother’s fiancé. This allowed the youth to share a moment with his family and have some closure with his grandmother’s death.

Tayler, your willingness to put the youth and his needs first during this time is appreciated. Thank you for showing empathy and being attuned to the needs of our youth. Congratulations!

Congratulations Tayler Baker! Thank you for being BCC’s exemplary ambassador of our core value: Empathy!
