“I remember a girl, who had run from home and was frightened by her own crime. You spoke with her before her detention hearings. She practices a different religion, but you helped her with her trauma. The fact that you guys can meet with any child regardless of their background and provide support always helps them feel like they have someone to talk to. Kristi, you are more than a chaplain at Tarrant County Juvenile Services (TCJS). You always have a smile on your face, a listening ear, a caring demeanor, and advice and support at the ready,” said a Juvenile Tarrant County Juvenile Services case worker. “Over the years, I have witnessed you support youth who were worried, stressed, overwhelmed, and in need. You constantly provide your uplifting spirit to both youth and staff. You are the ‘calm’ at TCJS. God’s love and light shine through you and everyone at TCJS are blessed by your work.”
