March 17, 2015

The 2015 Good Government Awards, held on March 11, recognized outstanding performances by managers working for the City and County of San Francisco. 


The Family Violence Prevention Team, consisting of Freda Randolph Glenn, Stephanie Ting and Thomas Wolf, implements new strategies to promote safe communication between parties in child-support cases. Through their work with the Family Violence Initiative, they have facilitated a 16 percent increase in the number of child support cases that are receiving payments. The have also helped the Department of Child Support Services establish new partnerships in the San Francisco domestic violence service and advocacy community. For families receiving court-ordered financial and medical support, the management and enforcement strategies, training and community engagement the team facilitates have played a critical role in the safe and effective delivery of services. Within the program, there have been no new incidents of violence between parties in child support cases since 2011, when the Family Violence Initiative was established.
