We’re All in This Together: Staff Shoutouts

We reached out to our staff and asked: Who always goes above and beyond for our children and families? Who do you strive to emulate each day?
These are the no-contest nominees.​

Arlene Cabral
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT — FOSTER FAMILY SERVICES
Arlene isn't just our Foster Family Services Admin; she's the backbone for our entire office. Her desk is the first thing you will see when you arrive at our Portsmouth office and her cheery “Good Morning" is the first thing you will hear. Arlene selflessly supports her colleagues, both programs and administration alike, with whatever is needed to support our team while they work virtually.
 
Jessica Davis
PROGRAM SUPPORT SERVICES COORDINATOR
Jess is a vital member of our team, ensuring all our youth are kept safe and secure for the duration of their time at Boys Town. She was nominated for her willingness to always rise to the occasion and do whatever is needed to put Boys Town's Mission and our youth's safety first.
 
Maria Gibau
SCHOOL SUPPORT SPECIALIST, LIFT TOGETHER WITH BOYS TOWN
Maria transitioned into her role as School Support Specialist in September 2020 and to lighten the role for her teammates, kept families in her caseload from her previous role as an In-Home Family Services Consultant, all while continuing to teach Common Sense Parenting® classes! Maria always does whatever is needed to ensure our children and families succeed. We are so thankful for her.
 
Melissa DuBois
CARE COORDINATION SERVICES CONSULTANT
Melissa's commitment to excellence has really shined over the past few months. She has assisted with onboarding new staff members, greatly improved her own outcomes with families and is a leader of Latinx Organization Understanding Diversity (LOUD) – one of Boys Town's Employee Resource Groups driving our Diversity, Equality and Inclusion initiative. She has also played a key role in implementing new systems for her program aimed at enhancing the quality of care we provide. Melissa is a Boys Town leader, through and through.
 
Riley Huntington (not pictured)
FAMILY HOME PROGRAM CONSULTANT
Riley was nominated for her hard work and dedication to our Family Home Program. Riley always goes the extra mile for her team, and no one speaks about the youth living in our Family Homes with as much pride and admiration as she does!
