Shuah Roskies has been a powerful and compassionate member of the child welfare sector. Coming from her background in law and through her involvement in the Office of the Children’s Lawyer, she capitalized on a time in our lives that should have had us all isolated. Instead, she used COVID, and our wakening to the cracks in the sector, to bring us all together, to introduce us across panels, to bring fresh insights to a worried and frustrated consort. She had us sharing information, networking, and making new associates and friends.
We will never forget her contributions or her fierce bravery in cutting through the barriers to bring the best to our children and youth in care.
Condolences to her family. Thank you for sharing her with our world.
