Barb Berkemeier

Barb Berkemeier is a special friend of DCCH, working tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure every child at DCCH feels special and loved. Today, we want to thank Barb for her many years of service to DCCH and the HALO League. Barb stepped down as HALO League President at the end of January but will continue to stay involved.

Barb’s commitment to DCCH and the children in our care is unmatched. She created and managed the super successful Cake Booth at many DCCH Summer Festivals, taking vacation from work to do it. Barb did all the shopping and helped cook the sauce for HALO Spaghetti Dinner fundraisers. She made treats for the kids and for every bake sale, Thanksgiving luncheon, Christmas Party, and Train-ride the HALO League hosted. Barb has always been a can-do person. If she saw a need, she found a way to meet it, and always with a smile on her face. We will miss you, Barb! Thank you for your service…you changed lives!

Thank You, Sister Jan!

Sister Jan

Today we give thanks for Sister Jan Villalobos, SND, who will be returning to her original Sisters of Notre Dame province in Thousand Oaks, California after more than nine years of service and residence in the Covington, Kentucky province.

During her stay, Sister Jan has faithfully served DCCH Center for Children and Families in a variety of roles from volunteer coordinator to assistant in the agency’s foster care program. She has consistently shown a willingness to pitch in wherever and whenever needed. She has shown genuine concern for the clients and employees at DCCH and has been a strong community advocate for the agency’s mission. Her desire to support and encourage others in ways large and small is one of the hallmarks of her tenure at DCCH.

She will be greatly missed by everyone here. We are grateful for her dedicated service and wish her well in the next chapter of her ministry. THANK YOU, SISTER JAN!
