Pa Family Support Alliance, the state’s leader in child abuse prevention, has awarded Daniel Goldstein, of South Whitehall, with the Blue Ribbon Champion for Safe Kids Award.
This award is given to four individuals that have gone above and beyond the call of duty to support and protect Pennsylvania’s children.
Goldstein is currently the supervisor of the investigative division at Lehigh County Children and Youth.
He has worked at the agency for over a decade.
He is known for working closely with the team he supervises and encouraging them to continually stay educated on child welfare issues.
He also is an advocate for local families, ensuring that they have access to supportive resources within the community.
Prior to working at Lehigh County Children and Youth, Goldstein retired from the New York City Police Department as a sergeant.
His background in law enforcement helps inform and shape the investigations of suspected cases of child abuse, and he is known for being extremely detail-oriented and thorough in his approach.
“Lehigh County children are safer because of Daniel’s tireless commitment,” Angela Liddle, president and CEO of the Pa Family Support Alliance said. “From his decades of service as a police sergeant to his current role of the investigation unit, Daniel has dedicated his career to protecting children. He should serve as a role model for all of us.”
In honor of this accomplishment, Pa Family Support Alliance has debuted a video on its Facebook page which features Goldstein giving a brief acceptance speech receiving his award.
As part of the month-long awareness campaign, the Pa Family Support Alliance is debuting video messages featuring the Department of Human Services Acting Secretary Meg Snead, State Senators Judy Ward and Maria Collett, as well as State Reps. Sheryl Delozier, R-88th and Pamela DeLissio, D-194th.
Pa Family Support Alliance prevents child abuse and protects children from harm by helping parents learn positive parenting techniques, educating professionals and volunteers who work with children to recognize and report child abuse and helping community members learn how they can play a positive role in keeping children safe.
