We would like to shine the light on a home visiting champion, Flower Habte-Burton, who just celebrated eight years at Children & Families First. Flower is dedicated to her role as a family support specialist. She works with her families with respect, care, and compassion. She is always looking for a way to support families holistically. At each visit, Flower asks her families about their emotional health, and after working with a mom for two years, she was able to connect her with mental health services. Flower knew of this need from the beginning, and with gentle encouragement, the mom connected with a much-needed resource. Flower is able to have a front seat to the mom’s progress and see her thrive in ways she was unable to before. Flower is always looking out for her team members and willing to offer assistance and knowledge from her nursing background. She is one of our most seasoned staff members and has been asked to represent HFD in multiple venues. On top of all her work and personal responsibilities, she is completing her master’s degree program to become a family nurse practitioner. We are proud of Flower and appreciate all that she does for her families.
