Chief Justice Harris Hines Awards

In 2017, J4C (in conjunction with the Office of the Child Advocate and the Georgia Bar Child Protection and Advocacy Section) introduced the Chief Justice Harris Hines Awards.  Chief Justice Hines served as the Chairman of the Committee on Justice for Children for 16 years, and continues to be a strong supporter of court improvement for Juvenile Courts.  We honor his work and commitment by giving an annual award in his name to a child welfare case manager and to a child welfare attorney who set forward the goals of court improvement and better outcomes for foster children.  

This past June, after receiving nominations from accross the state, we awarded Special Assistant Attorney General for Rockdale Coounty, Christopher Hempfling, and Colquitt County Case Manager, Demetria Campbell, with the Chief Justice Hines Award for their committment to the children in our state.
