Dori Kornfeld Goldman was honored as a 2017 "Women of Influence" by the Greater Houston Section of the National Council of Jewish Women. Originally scheduled to be held in fall 2017, the January 26 award ceremony was delayed after Hurricane Harvey's hit to the Texas Gulf Coast.
The annual award recognizes women who embody NCJW's beliefs of courage, commitment, and compassion by putting those beliefs into action. Dori's recognition is connected to her work through Yetter Coleman representing a class of 12,000 foster children in a decade-plus fight challenging the pervasive failures in the Texas foster care system.
"We congratulate Dori on this prestigious and well-deserved award," said Paul Yetter, managing partner, "and we are proud to help her celebrate this wonderful recognition of her service and commitment to others."
