As we celebrate Public Service Recognition Week and public servants’ tireless commitment to advancing the common good, I wanted to personally reach out and thank you for your unwavering leadership and support of Community Services Block Grant (CSBG).
On behalf of the Administration for Children and Families’ (ACF) Office of Community Services (OCS), I want to thank you for your continued commitment to public service. Thank you for the life-changing work that you do, day in and day out, to support and uplift vulnerable children, families, and communities. Government needs people like you to address the unprecedented challenges our nation is facing. Without your dedication to public service, the mission and vision of OCS – reducing the causes and consequences of poverty, increasing opportunity and economic security of individuals and families, and revitalizing communities – could not be realized.
We are incredibly grateful for you, and we want to hear more about why you chose public service! Follow us on Twitter @OCS_ACFgov and share your story using the hashtags #PublicServiceRecognitionWeek, #GovPossible, and #ServeBecause.
Additionally, in case you missed it, ACF Assistant Secretary January Contreras recently released a message in observance of Earth Day to thank all OCS grant recipients and partners for their work to address the impact of climate change and promote environmental and racial equity. In honor of Public Service Recognition Week, we hope you will take some time to view this heartfelt message.
