Lisa Pitchford 2019 award winnerLisa Pitchford, Adult Protective Services Worker for Hamilton County Job and Family Services (JFS), was honored by Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio for her dedication, commitment and service to vulnerable older adults in Hamilton County.

Lisa received Council on Aging’s Outstanding Service Provider Award at the organization’s annual meeting, March 13, at the Sharonville Convention Center.

Known by her colleagues as the go-to-person at JFS, Lisa has provided direct service to thousands of older and vulnerable adults in Hamilton County over the last 26 years. If her co-workers or manager run into a stumbling block, they go to Lisa for help getting around it. Lisa has developed such a network over the years that she always knows someone – a police officer, lawyer, banker, volunteer – who will help.

Lt. Joe Macaluso, chief investigator for the Delhi Police Department, described Lisa this way: "She’s my point person. Lisa is wonderful. She is always willing to take my calls, no matter what time of the day or night. She’s all-in."
