An Abbotsford worker is one of four people in B.C. to receive a B.C. Community Social Services Award of Excellence.

Shelly Knuff is the manager of the Grant East residential care home operated by Communitas Supportive Care Society. She was presented with her award from the Community Social Services Employers’ Association (CCSEA) at a luncheon on Oct. 5 in Vancouver.

The CCSEA states on its awards website that Knuff was selected to receive its Leader Award because she has “made an impact in the lives of staff and residents with her leadership skills.”

Knuff, who has worked with Communitas for over 25 years, oversees many programs and created the Community Living Program to provide skills and training for people with disabilities.

“Shelly is a tireless advocate who deeply values the lives of those around her. She is a mentor and leader who has brought fresh ideas and created positive, lasting change to the social services community,” the BCCSS said.
