Each year Methodist Children’s Home recognizes staff members who exemplify the Core Values of the organization. Staff are nominated by their peers and are recognized at an all-staff meeting during which the Core Awards are given.
The Core Awards for MCH are:
Marisol Gomez, director of the MCH Family Outreach in Corpus Christi, received the Core Award for Hope at the spring 2015 all-staff meeting. The recipient of the Core Award for Hope is someone who believes in the possibilities of the future.
Gomez has worked for MCH for five years. “I was fortunate to be in attendance at the all-staff meeting that day. When Mr. Brown said my name I was so surprised, I really was not expecting it. MCH is a great agency with amazing staff and I am honored to have been selected for such an award.”
According to Gomez’s nomination, “Marisol is genuine in her interactions with everyone she meets and believes deeply in the ministries of MCH. Under her direction, Marisol has helped grow the services offered in the Corpus Christi area. She has implemented the Family Solutions Program, which is impacting families beyond measure. The prevention programs have flourished and two additional case managers have been added due to the demand for services. Marisol is generous of her time, skills, and talents and goes above and beyond to support colleagues, staff and clients. She sees the best in everyone she meets.”
The Corpus Christi staff had this to share about Gomez:
“At Marisol’s core is a deeply caring heart for the children we serve. She is also mindful and supportive of her staff. Her door is always open to offer us guidance.”
“Marisol, is a knowledgeable and a well prepared leader. She has a generous and tender heart, and I am honored to be under her supervision.”
Traci Wagner, MCH administrator and Gomez’s supervisor said: “It was an honor to watch Marisol be recognized for the Core Award for Hope. She gives so much to the ministry in Corpus Christi and is such a blessing to MCH.”
