CDF is proud to announce that Roberta Malavenda has been awarded the Refugee Champion award by Refugee Family Services. Roberta is a longtime advocate for improved early learning programs in Georgia.
“Roberta Malavenda has been an unsurpassed champion for refugees and for early learning in the State of Georgia. There is no one we can think of who is more deserving of our recognition and thanks,” said Emily Pelton, executive director of Refugee Family Services. “We are so grateful to Roberta, and we are thrilled to have a chance to thank her for her many years of service and her commitment to the refugee community and to families everywhere.”
Refugee Family Services will present the award on Wednesday, April 24, at an event called Breaking Bread Together: A Celebration of Friends of RFS in Magnolia Hall, at the Piedmont Park Conservancy.
Roberta has worked with CDF since its founding in 2010 and has been active in the Clarkston community and in the greater Atlanta area for years prior to that. May her integrity, creativity, and ingenuity continue to benefit and inspire all those who work with her.
