The Montgomery County District Attorney has been recognized for her work with a non-profit that provides support for abused children.
Risa Vetri Ferman was named a Woman of Worth by L'Oreal Paris. The program, in its seventh year, has honored 70 women who advocate for causes in their communities.
Ferman co-founded Mission Kids Child Advocacy Center to coordinate a multi-disciplinary team response to child abuse. Child abuse victims now go to the facility where they report their story once to specially trained interviewers, according to the district attorneys office.
