Mr. Bruce Brannan awarded
Outstanding Contribution to the Courts Award

As a volunteer for the Foster Care Review Board (FCRB) since the Arizona Legislature established the program in 1979, Bruce Brannan has devoted more than 6,000 hours to reviewing the cases of children and making recommendations to the juvenile court on their behalf.
        In addition to volunteering on his local Foster Care Review Board, Mr. Brannan has served as chair of the local and state boards, and on the state board’s Annual Report Committee, the Community Outreach and Awareness Committee, and the Executive Committee. He has also served on numerous ad hoc committees created to address specific issues within FCRB.  
     Because of his passion and dedication to
Arizona ’s children, Governor Janet Napolitano appointed him to the Governor’s Committee on CPS Reform, the Governor’s CPS Oversight Committee, and the Committee on Juvenile Courts. He stays informed of child welfare trends and works to ensure the program is accountable to the children it serves. In addition to his volunteer services, he is a Project Manager for Abacus Project Management.

FCRB Honors Exemplary Service

Volunteers Paul Hoffman from Pima County and Michael James from Yavapai County have been selected to receive the Foster Care Review Board’s quarterly Exemplary Service Award for their service on behalf of Arizona’s foster children.  Paul has served on the Foster Care Review Board since January of 2005 and is also a member of the FCRB’s State Board.  Upon volunteering for the FCRB, Paul immediately demonstrated a determination to develop a knowledge base about social services issues that has made him an incalculable asset to the Board he serves on as well as the overall program.  He routinely volunteers for extra projects and is always available to substitute on Boards when needed.  Michael has served on the Foster Care Review Board for almost 2 years. He too serves on the FCRB State Board and was recently elected to its Executive Committee.  Michael’s professionalism, demeanor and dedication are exemplified in the work he does both as a Board member, CASA Mentor, and Removal Review Team Member.  He has made himself available to assist with training new Board members and is always available to substitute on other Boards when called upon.  The FCRB is grateful for these volunteers’ dedication and service.  To volunteer call 800-732-8193.
