FALL RIVER, MA - Each year the Child Protection Council awards an individual for their work and commitment to children and families—this year’s recipient is the Director of our People, Incorporated’s Early Intervention and Early Intervention Partnerships Program, Robin Jones.

Robin began her career in the Human Services field in the 1990’s and since that time has impacted and supported the lives of hundreds of families and children. She joined the Early Intervention team of People Incorporated as a Service Coordinator in 1998. Robin worked with families and children offering support in the area of child development, social skills, resources, and parenting. She was later promoted to supervisor, then Clinical Coordinator of the Early Intervention program. Robin’s expertise, mentorship abilities, and solid work ethics lead her to the current position of Director of the Early Intervention Program and Early Intervention Partnership Program at People, Incorporated.

“Robin continues to lead her teams with tireless passion, thoughtfulness and genuine caring. She always puts others first, thinking of the families and their often times complex lives” remarked William Perkins, President and CEO of People, Incorporated. “Additionally, Robin’s guiding principles of integrity and compassion have certainly distinguished her as a leader in the field of early intervention not only in our community but throughout the state. In fact, in July of this year, Robin became President of the Massachusetts Early Intervention Consortium, a tribute to her consistent advocacy for children and families. We sincerely congratulate Robin Jones for her work and for receiving this year’s Child Protection Council award.”

People, Incorporated’s Early Intervention Program has been servicing the developmental and therapeutic needs of children ages birth to three for over 30 years. Experienced therapists and clinicians work with the family to provide a comprehensive delivery of services which best meets the child’s and family’s needs. The Agency’s Early Intervention Partnerships Program provides education, support, and resources to pregnant women and new mothers of all ages, through home visits and support groups. Families set goals as part of a Family Care Plan that includes education, support groups, mental health services and health care.
