Head of DHS gets national award


It's not often you see "Department of Human Services" and "excellence" in the same sentence, but on Monday, those words appeared together.

The Casey Family Programs, a national foundation focused on foster care and improving the child welfare system, gave DHS Commissioner Anne Marie Ambrose a Casey Excellence in Leadership Award.

The awards, in their first year, recognize distinguished work, leadership, and dedication to improving the child welfare system.

 “Under Commissioner Ambrose’s watch, DHS was reorganized with a new accountability system and child placement has dropped while permanency has grown," Mayor Michael A. Nutter said.
