13th Annual Borther Raymond L. Fitz Award Luncheon

A passion for protecting children led Libby Nicholson to champion the creation of CARE House, an advocacy center for child victims of abuse and neglect, to reduce trauma for children and increase collaboration in investigations.

On Friday, February 15, 2013, the Montgomery County Family and Children First Council will recognize Elizabeth “Libby” Nicholson at the 13th Annual Brother Raymond L. Fitz Award Luncheon.  This special event will be held from 11:45 a.m.to 1 p.m. at Sinclair Community College Ponitz Center in downtown Dayton. 

The Brother Raymond L. Fitz Award honors someone who exemplifies Brother Ray’s dedication to nurturing and protecting children and families by his or her daily efforts in the community. 

Throughout her career, Libby has worked to protect the community’s children. Her experience at Montgomery County Children Services and at the Emergency Department at The Children’s Medical Center of Dayton showed her the need for a coordinated response to child abuse. Through her participation on the Child Protection Task Force, she learned of child advocacy centers. CARE House opened in 1999 with Libby as Director. Since then, over 7,000 children have received services.

The Montgomery County Family and Children First Council coordinates human services programs across the county.  The Council established the award to honor Raymond L. Fitz, former president of the University of Dayton, for his years of leadership and service to the community.
