EPACCC Spreads Holiday Cheer through the Community

epaccc-holiday-pic.jpgAs a result of the Day of Collaboration in the East Bayshore Community Service Area, the East Palo Alto Community Counseling Center (EPACCC) team opted to volunteer their time at the Ecumenical Hunger Program one afternoon in lieu of a holiday party.  The entire Staff participated in sorting clothes and pantry donations for the residents of East Palo Alto and East Menlo Park.  It was wonderful for the team to spend a bit of time together as a staff outside of the clinic and deliver direct service to the Community.

Today at the Women in County Government recognition ceremony, one of our very own, Roxanne Clarke, was presented with the Public Service: The Extra Mile award for going above and beyond the call of duty as a bilingual Psychiatric Social Worker at Canyon Oaks Youth Center.

Canyon Oaks Supervising Mental Health Clinician, Victoria Valencia, presented Roxanne with the award, citing her ability to overcome unexpected challenges with a level head.

In her acceptance speech, Roxanne credited her mother with insisting she pursue a college degree – a decision that opened up a world of opportunities which previously seemed out of reach. Roxanne also spoke about the importance of nurturing and supporting our youth community, so they too can achieve their full potential.

Congratulations, Roxanne!
