Vonnetta has been an employee of SCO Family of Services for the past 19 years in Community Residential Programs. She is extremely devoted to the programs, and ensures that her work is always completed by or before deadlines. Her attention to detail is second to none. She is efficient and dedicated to her role of expediting the hiring process for the city-based adolescent and young adult services programs. Even though Vonnetta’s role is office based, she is very dedicated to staying connected to the front-line through volunteering her time or working child care shifts in an emergency or by cooking for group homes on her weekends.  She also jumps right in and assists the program when coverage is needed for upcoming planned activities. Vonnetta truly encompasses the SCO mission and her hard work and dedication deserve to be recognized! Congratulations Vonnetta!

Nydia Sutherland
Maintenance Worker
Sea Cliff RTC

Nydia has been an employee of SCO Family of Services for the past 22 years. In that time frame, Nydia has been a very caring and helpful co-worker to all. She is always looking to help someone in need. Her goal is to make sure that the consumers have a nice place to live and she is constantly looking for ways to improve the appearance of the cottages and grounds. She even takes it one step further to touch base with directors to ensure there is funding allocated for her creative improvements. Nydia exemplifies dedication to SCO, especially during snowstorms when she can be counted on to make it to work in order to make the campus safe for everyone… and she even stays over if necessary. Her many accomplishments, creative spirit, caring ways and dedication to SCO deserve to be acknowledged. Congratulations Nydia!
