UMFS Unwavering Champion Kameel Robinson
August 31, 2018
Each month, UMFS recognizes one of our employees as the Unwavering Champion of the Month. This award celebrates the UMFS mission and how our employees bring that mission to life. Our mission: UMFS is an unwavering champion for high-risk children and families, collaborating with communities to help them reach their full potential.
Our Unwavering Champion for August is Kameel Robinson, Adoption Recruiter in Tidewater. Kameel has been the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiter for the Tidewater office for three years, and in that time she has matched 36 children and finalized 18 adoptions.
Laura Garvin with Wendy’s Wonderful Kids had these wonderful things to say about Kameel: “I continue to be inspired by your hard work and dedication to the youth you are serving. You truly leave no stone unturned and are an exceptional advocate for the children on your caseload.”
Vineta Watson, UMFS Family Systems Coordinator also praised Kameel’s unwavering support for children and commended her for upholding UMFS’ values. “Kameel is always relentlessly pursuing solutions for the youth on her caseload,” Vineta said.
Kameel is quick to lend a hand to her teammates whenever needed, Vineta said. “She’s a super team player.” Kameel frequently initiates team-building exercises to ensure her colleagues build relationships and grow together as a unit.
Kameel is relentless in her commitment to the children and families she serves. Not only does she prepare her youth for adoption, she ensures adoptive families have the necessary building blocks to nurture lasting, positive relationships.
“Her passion for youth to have forever families is unfailing,” Vineta said.
