Anthony Trotman Named 2015 Champion of Children
We are delighted to share the news that ACS client Anthony Trotman, Director of the Franklin County Department of Job and Family Services, has been named the 2015 Champion of Children by the United Way of Central Ohio. It’s a well-deserved honor. Mr. Trotman oversees a budget of more than $72 million and a team of 630 people to fund high-quality childcare, engage and support more than 6,000 youth in meaningful afterschool and summer programs, and provide Medicaid coverage for more than 145,000 kids. He also helped create “More Than My Brother’s Keeper” — a place-based, collective impact model that helps boys ages 10 to 14 stay on track for success in both post-secondary and career settings. And as if that’s not enough, Mr. Trotman serves as a Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteer mentor to a young man in the community. We love our clients, and we’re ecstatic when other people love them, too! Congratulations, Mr. Trotman!
