  Mr. CONNOLLY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Prince 
William County Department of Social Services and its volunteers who 
help provide a social safety net for those individuals and families who 
find themselves in a time of need or uncertainty.
   The Prince William County Department of Social Services works to 
enhance the quality of life for individuals and families with programs 
that help them cope in moments of personal crisis and develop skills 
for self-sufficiency. The Department strengthens the social and 
economic well-being of county citizens by administering programs such 
as Child and Adult Protective Services, Supplemental Nutrition 
Assistance Program, Medicaid, and temporary assistance to families in 
need. The Department of Social Services employs a committed 
professional staff with credentials in social work, employment 
counseling and career planning, criminal justice, and information 
technology. Volunteers supplement the work done by the staff with 
outreach and administrative support.
   It is my honor to enter into the Congressional Record the names of 
the volunteers for the Prince William County Department of Social 
Services: Sharon Clerkin, Cynthia Fiattor, Yolanda Miles, and Saul 
Svarz.
   Mr. Speaker, I ask that my colleagues join me in commending these 
individuals for their service and in thanking them for their dedication 
to our community. The Department of Social Services fulfills our 
commitment to individuals and families in a time of need. It is a vital 
community resource and helping hand whose reach is extended by 
volunteer support.
