Congratulations to Honore’ Schrade, who has been selected as the Employee of the Quarter for the final quarter of FY 2017.
Honore’ has been working with us for nearly two years, and she helped us launch our Mobile Crisis Services for Children. Since then, the program has helped 157 children and youth experiencing mental health emergencies. Here’s what her nomination letter had to say about Honore’s amazing work:
I would like to nominate Honore’ Schrade, Child and Adolescent Emergency Services Therapist, for employee of the quarter. Honore’ joined our team in September 2015, as we added new mobile crisis services for children. Honore’ was incredibly helpful during the implementation of the new program and was energetic and patient as we finalized policies and procedures. As the program got rolling, Honore’ has really been a super star. She’s built excellent relationships with community agencies, schools, families and clients. She’s been asked to give numerous presentations on our program and how to assist children experiencing crises. She goes above and beyond to help children experiencing crises and works tirelessly to make sure their needs are met. When it comes to taking on additional work, she doesn’t know the word “no!” The families she encounters are experiencing their worst moments and in the year and a half she’s been in this position, she’s helped children through losing parents and siblings, surviving sexual assault and abuse, overcoming suicidal thoughts, learning tools to cope with developmental disabilities and so much more. She provides therapy, support and genuine caring that can’t be matched. Despite hearing an endless amount of sad stories and working against huge obstacles, she always has a smile on her face and a positive attitude. She’s been such a positive addition to our ES team and we all really enjoy working with her. Our agency and our community are very lucky to have such a talented, caring and hardworking therapist helping our children. There is no one more deserving of our employee recognition program!
