Tipping the balance back toward those doing good in the world
Every day you are called to tackle heroic tasks — from building safer communities and upholding justice to mitigating risk and uncovering fraud. The Everyday Heroes program was created to honor public service professionals, the important work they do, and their dedication to solving the most pressing challenges facing their communities.
Putting the puzzle pieces together
Some non-custodial parents go to great lengths to evade detection by the courts and avoid paying child support. When a child with complex medical issues required additional support, Samantha Eriks of the Lake County Prosecutor's Office, was the right person to piece together the parent's whereabouts and help the child get their much needed care.
