Lynn B. Jacobs and Rev. Martin Otto Zimmann have been appointed to the Lucas County Children Services Board of Trustees by the Lucas County Commissioners.
“Its an honor and privilege to be appointed to serve on the Children Services Board,” Jacobs said.
Jacobs, now a retired prosecutor from the Lucas County Prosecutor’s Office Civil and Juvenile Division, was always interested in the work of Lucas County Children’s Services, but couldn’t volunteer for them because they were a client, she said.
Through her work with the courts, Jacobs saw how children may be impacted when the basic stability of the family is lacking and hopes to be able to assist those children in this position, she said.
Jacobs is member of the Toledo, Ohio State and Women’s Bar Associations She currently serves on the Commission on Grievances and Disciple of the Ohio Supreme Court.
Otto Zimmann is an assisting pastor of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church of Temperance, Mich., and an instructor at BGSU. Otto Zimmann and his wife are foster parents for Lucas County Children Services.
“My wife and I have been foster parents for a year and my wife serves on the board for the Lucas County Educational Services. I really wanted to get involved at another level and help children who are at risk of falling through the cracks,” Otto Zimmann said.
Otto Zimmann said he has tremendous respect for what the Lucas County Children Service Board has been doing and is looking forward to being involved.
The board of trustees oversees procedures, policy and funding for the Lucas County Children Services. Lucas County Children Services works to protect children at risk for abuse and neglect.
