The MFHS 48th Annual Meeting of the Board of Directors and Community Awards Luncheon will take place on Wednesday, October 16th, 2019, 12 noon at The Westmoreland Club, Wilkes-Barre. Our agency will be presenting several awards, including the Public Service Award to the Honorable Governor Tom Wolf.

MFHS began its journey of service in April 1971, with a vision to improve the quality of family life, promote responsible parenthood and coordinate effective service delivery in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Today, our agency has grown to a regional organization serving over 90,000 individuals in 16 Pennsylvania counties.  

The Public Service Award is being presented to Governor Tom Wolf in recognition of his work advocating for the health of women, children and families throughout Pennsylvania during his time in office. Governor Wolf’s leadership in healthcare is evident in the steps he took to expand Medicaid to cover more Pennsylvanians, as well as in the creation of the Maternal Mortality Review Committee, whose goal is to reduce the number of maternal deaths in Pennsylvania. In addition, his commitment to ending the opioid crisis in Pennsylvania by increasing access to life saving services and treatment is giving families hope for a healthy future.

Several other awards will be presented during our 48th Annual Community Awards Luncheon:

·         Maureen Rinehimer: The Rose Allan Tucker Award
·         Lackawanna College: The Community Partner Award
·         Erin Keating: The Youth Partner Award
·         Ariana Velez: The Kathy A. Dickerson Memorial Scholarship
