Justin Weiner, chairman of the Henderson County Child Welfare Board, receives the 2013-2014 Lucille Rochs Texas Council of Child Welfare Boards Volunteer of the Year Award in recognition of his outstanding leadership and tireless efforts in addressing and raising awareness about issues of abused children. The award spans all volunteers for the Department of Family and Protective Services over a 23 county region and was presented to Justin during the annual awards luncheon Friday in Jacksonville.
Justin has dedicated his life to the defense of abused children. As an Assistant District Attorney for Henderson County, he has earned a reputation as an aggressive prosecutor, successfully prosecuting numerous cases where other prosecutors would have passed on the case due to the difficulty involved. His willingness to accept and ultimately win complicated cases has made a significant impact against repeat offenders in Henderson County.
The Henderson County Child Welfare Board’s mission is to support a network of volunteers and Child Protective Services workers who are concerned with the welfare of children, especially those suffering from sexual violence, physical violence, and neglect. Its purpose is to function as a liaison between the community and the Texas Department of Family and Child Protective Services.
