CINCINNATI (October 7, 2014) – The HealthPath Foundation of Ohio (HPF-Ohio) awarded its 2014 Community Connector Award to Kathy King, Guardian ad Litem and Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) Manager for ProKids in Cincinnati. The award was presented at the Foundation’s annual Community Connections Luncheon on October 3.

The Community Connector Award recognizes an individual or pair of individuals who have dedicated their time and efforts to give all Ohioans the opportunity to achieve their fullest health potential.

King has served children in the Hamilton County Courts since 1999 and works tirelessly through committees, trainings, and presentations to make a difference. She is on the steering committees of the Hamilton County Family Violence Prevention Project, where she serves as chair of the Children Exposed to Intimate Partner Violence Committee,  and the Hamilton County Domestic Violence Coordinating Council.

She researched, developed, and continues to direct the Steps to Peace Program for ProKids which trains CASAs on recognizing the signs of witnessing domestic violence in children and addressing the issues that arise. 

King’s honor includes designating a grant of $2,500 to a nonprofit of her choice. The nonprofit must work in one of HealthPath’s focus areas and predominantly serve at least one of HealthPath’s 36 counties. King selected ProKids as the recipient of this grant.
