By Home of the Innocents

Councilwoman to attend special breakfast ceremony on June 3rd

 

Louisville – Every year, the Home of the Innocents honors a group or individual who has provided exemplary service for the protection and advocacy of children.

            On June 3rd, the Home will again honor such an individual when it names Councilwoman Judith Green (D-1) as its “2009 Childfriend of the Year”

            “Children and their welfare are a top priority in my life,” says Green. “It is an honor to be recognized by an organization that knows how important it is to protect and advocate for children every day.”

            The Home of the Innocents will host an event honoring Green on Wednesday, June 3rd from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. at Mellwood Arts Center.

A native of Henderson, Kentucky, Councilwoman Green and her husband James have been proud parents of two biological children, and 11 adopted children. In the last two years, Dr. Green and her husband have been the foster parents of approximately twelve (12) teen-age boys. She has been a strong advocate for foster and adoptive parenting for at least twenty-five (25) years.

“I am happy to be joining thousands of others in this community who are advocates for children and who have helped keep an organization such as the Home of Innocents operational,” says Green.

The Home of the Innocents has acknowledged over 32,000 Childfriends who help the organization.

For more information about the event, contact the Home of the Innocents at 502-596-1016.

 

  As stated in a previous biographical post regarding Councilwoman Green, she has been an advocate for children for many years, serving as an adoptive parent, as well as a foster parent.

  1. First, thank you so much for the great coverage of Home of the Innocents’ upcoming event. As a representative of the Home, I wanted to clarify one detail. A Childfriend of the Year has been recognized by the Home annually since 1997, with the exception of 2003. As such, we have recognized 12 honorees as of this year, not 32,000. Thanks again for your recognition of Councilwoman Green’s much-deserved award.
