Statements on Commissioner Ambrose Leaving DHS


June 27, 2014: “This is truly a day of mixed emotions for me,” said District Attorney Seth Williams. “On one hand I am extremely happy for Commissioner Anne Marie Ambrose as she embarks on this new professional chapter in her life, but on the other hand I am sad for our city. Her departure will be a tremendous loss for Philadelphia, and that is a fact that can’t be understated. Anne Marie truly cares about the people she was in charge of protecting, our most vulnerable residents-our children. I know she will bring that same compassion and energy to the Casey Family Programs, and while I will no longer be meeting with her professionally I will continue to have the pleasure of seeing her often because she is one of my neighbors.”

“Anne Marie Ambrose was not only a great partner to this office, she was and will continue to be a great friend,” said First Assistant Edward McCann. “She is personally and professionally committed to trying to ensure that all the children in Philadelphia could grow up in healthy and safe environments. Her job is probably one of the hardest in the city and she did it with determination, passion, professionalism and most importantly with her entire heart and soul invested in it. The Casey Family Programs’ gain is Philadelphia’s loss, and Commissioner Ambrose will truly be missed.”
