Children services worker recognized at state level

Roy Lutz of the Warren County Children Services agency was recognized by the Public Children Services Association of Ohio as Outstanding Child Protection Worker of the Year.

A former parole/probation officer, Lutz has been in the field two years. In that time, he has helped his county roll out alternative response and led his peers in client engagement and facilitation.

He immersed himself in Safe & Together training in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program and is recruiting “bigs” for children on his caseload.

He donated his own fishing pole to a family, warehoused needed supplies, secured a pro bono attorney for a mom accused of endangerment and purchased gift cards at Christmas when a donation sponsor failed to follow through.
