Strengthening Families Washington 2016 Unsung Hero: Vallerie Fisher




2016 Unsung Hero Vallerie Fisher

February 8, 2016

Honoree:  Vallerie Fisher, Seattle

Nominator:  Anita Williams

 

I’m nominating Vallerie Fisher because by day she is a family support worker with Seattle Public Schools, and by night a widowed mother of five daughters; 3 she birthed, two are adopted.  She has been a foster adoptive parent for 22 years, initially she way only an emergency bed but fell in love with a baby girl now her adopted daughter of 22 years.  Vallerie runs a girls group for elementary age (11 & 12 year olds) to empower them.

 

Seattle's Child is proud to once again sponsor the Unsung Heroes being honored in February by  the Department of Early Learning’s Strengthening Families Washington. Every day this month we'll present an Unsung Hero on seattleschild.com.   Nominations are accepted from around the state and and include biological parents, grandparents, foster and adoptive parents. Some volunteer at local schools; some have started nonprofit organizations; some mentor others in their communities. All honorees are true heroes - outstanding caregivers doing important work on behalf of children.
