It was the first time any health entity in the state has won the award… and it happened today in Bismarck.
The FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award was presented to the Sanford Health community.

More specifically, the award honored two women who have “gone above and beyond” to keep children safe.
Shannon Hilfer and Jessica Ahmann work closely with victims of child abuse.
The two accepted the award on the behalf of the Dakota Children’s Advocacy Center.
They said their goal every day, is to turn the lives around of children who have survived what many of us can’t imagine.

“Their resiliency is amazing. They overcome things that, I don’t think as an adult, I ever could,” said Shannon Hilfer, Dakota Children’s Advocacy Center.

 “The recognition just really shows that we do make a difference to these kids, and that’s truly, like Shannon said, what it’s all about. It’s helping them get through this tough time,” said Jessica Ahmann, Dakota Children’s Advocacy Center.

The DCAC offers its services free of charge to children and families who have been affected by abuse.
