Matteson, IL – Above and Beyond Award – Congrats Ashley Janaszak!

Deva Suckerman, Clinical Supervisor in Matteson, IL writes,

“I would like to present, Ashley Janaszak therapist in the foster care program, with the “Above and Beyond” award. Ashley joined the NYAP team in July of 2011 and quickly became an integral part of the newly developed clinical department. Ashley brings a tremendous amount of energy, passion and dedication to her work with NYAP youth and families. When Ashley found out that one of her clients was pregnant, she started clipping coupons and then held a bake sale for staff to help get mom and daughter off to a good start.

A new mom herself, Ashley thought about the importance of feeling supported and cared for during a transition and wanted her client to feel that same sense of support. It was a success- she brought tons of diapers to her client’s baby shower last weekend. Ashley is a go-getter with a great sense of humor and a big heart. She is always willing to go above and beyond. We appreciate her so much!”
