Champion for children

Trier recognized as 2021 recipient, impacts lives of families throughout community


SHERIDAN — Carla Trier frequents an application on her cellphone connecting her with people in jail. With 11 children having been pulled from the homes of their blood relatives for different reasons and placed or having worked closely with Trier, it’s often she needs to connect with folks who’ve been incarcerated for one reason or another.

In honor of her commitment to those in need in the community, Compass Center for Families recognized Trier Friday as the 2021 Champion for Children. Her self-proclaimed unexpected life calling of helping children and families currently in or recovering from crisis earned her the award.
