Navajo County Distinguished Victim Service Award
Volunteer Secretary for the Family Advocacy Center Board
It is with great pleasure that the Navajo County Victim Service’s Department awards Cindy Reinholtz, Secretary of the Navajo County Family Advocacy Center Board, the 2022 Navajo County Attorney’s Office Distinguished Victim Service Award. Each year, Victim Services awards a victim service provider in our area who has demonstrated excellence and gone above and beyond to support victim’s in our community. Cindy was nominated for this award by the Navajo County Family Advocacy Center. Below is nomination letter:
Cindy Reinholtz has been a volunteer board member for the Navajo County Family Advocacy Center (FAC) for 10 nearly years. In 2012, she was appointed the FAC Board secretary role. To date Cindy is the longest standing FAC Board member to date.
Cindy has been instrumental to the advancement of the FAC’s throughout the years. In 2013, she coordinated and established the first annual “Put it on the Tee for the FAC” Golf Tournament Fundraiser. This fundraiser to date has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the FAC and remains the greatest source of revenue for the center.
Developing a fundraiser that is as successful as hers is no simple task. Cindy never takes a break, as soon as this event end’s, the next one begins. She has brought and maintained a team of volunteers who help her and the FAC year after year. She maintains relationships with Golf Tournament donor’s and sponsors to secure continuing contributions. Throughout the year’s she has grown this event with her strategic innovation that has strengthened this event each and every year, with last year being one of the most successful.
Cindy has humbly volunteered her time so she can help support and bring services to the most vulnerable victim population, our children. She has been crucial in establishing a consistent donor base for the FAC.
The money she raise’s every year, even beyond the Golf Tournament, help provide children with Forensic Interviews and SANE exams, victim specialists to work with families providing support and resources and has provided therapy programs that aid in our children’s healing.
Without her selflessness and dedication, the Family Advocacy would not be where it is today. She has been its staple and biggest champion. For her the FAC will always be grateful.
It is impossible to put into word’s the gratitude we feel for her. This award is long overdue and will never be enough. For you Cindy, we will always be and thankful. The children in our community are better because of the hard work that you do. It is with great pleasure I respectfully nominate Cindy Reinholtz for the 2022 Navajo County Attorney’s Office Distinguished Victim Service Award.
