Staff Spotlight: Bill
Bill is a Youth Specialist III in CEDARS Emergency Shelter whose impact packs a real punch!
Bill has been involved in the professional boxing world for many years. After working for a youth services agency across the state, he decided to combine his love of boxing and helping kids by opening his own boxing gym for the youth he works with.
He then brought his passions to Lincoln when he started working at CEDARS. Bill understands the significant role that being physically active can play in a kid's life. Not only does physical activity at a young age promote lifelong wellness, but it's a great step in processing difficult emotions, building confidence and recovering from trauma.
Bill uses boxing as a way to build meaningful connections with these kids. A few years ago, he even earned an award for his work alongside a kid in CEDARS care who fell in love with the sport.
Bill takes pride in ensuring that he impacts a kid's life by the power of play and sport. Fellow staff members applaud Bill for his dedication to CEDARS and the kids we serve.
Please help us thank Bill for being here for kids and families in our community!
