The Children First Award was created in 2000 to honor people in our community who support services for children and families in Stanislaus County at extraordinary levels.  Our prior recipients’ innovative leadership, philanthropy and volunteerism exemplify the qualities this award was meant to honor.  This year, Center for Human Services (CHS) is proud to recognize Chuck and Kristi O’Brien.
