Seattle's Child is proud to once again sponsor the Unsung Heroes being honored in February by the Department of Children, Youth and Families Strengthening Families Washington.
Every day this month we'll present an Unsung Hero.
Nominations are accepted from around the state 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.
Tylar Bauer, Port Angeles
I am nominating Tylar for the Unsung Hero award for many reasons.
Tylar is the mom of two beautiful children and works full time while her husband stays at home to care for the kids.
Tylar and her family moved here from the Seattle area for a better quality of life, and since then she has worked hard to make connections inside our community. Tylar loves to bake and has started a business on the side that allows for her passion. She is consistent and hardworking and is regularly recognized by her employer for these traits, and she is a great mother who engages with her children and works to promote their development.
When she first moved here the family struggled with a sense of community, but due to Tylar’s determination, the family has made important and lasting connections.
Nominator: Krista Hanan, PAT program at First Step Family Support Center
