MNCFR gives several awards in recognition of contributions to the family field each year.

  • Ruth Hathaway Jewson Distinguished Service to Families Award is given to a professional in the family field who is recognized for outstanding work on behalf of families. Preference is given to individuals who are members of MNCFR and NCFR.

 

  • Friend of the Family Award is given to a professional or organization who may or may not be in the family field, but who has made significant contributions to the quality of family life in Minnesota.
