Liberty Bell Winter Gala

On Saturday, January 26, 2013, The Foundation of the New Haven County Bar honored the recipient of the 2013 Liberty Bell Award at its annual Liberty Bell Winter Gala. The Liberty Bell Award honors non-lawyers or community organizations that have shown an extraordinary commitment to justice or provided outstanding service to the local community. This year’s award was presented to Cheryl Burack, M.S. for her work with Family Centered Services of CT, Inc. (previously Coordinating Council for Children in Crisis, Inc.)

 Cheryl Burack is the Executive Director of Family Centered Services of CT, Inc., a private nonprofit community-based organization dedicated to ending child abuse, neglect and victimization across the life span. Since coming to the agency in 1987, Cheryl has worked with the staff and Board of Directors to broaden Family Centered Services of CT’s mission and significantly expand program services, diversify its funding sources and develop collaborations with other local non-profits. It is this sense of constant growth and change, combined with the grass-roots commitment of the agency to the community, which keeps Cheryl excited about her job and proud to be associated with Family Centered Services of CT.
