Celebrating National Social Work Month

To celebrate March as National Social Work Month, we are highlighting some of the great things foster parents have told us about case managers, licensing coordinators, adoption specialists, and others who spend every day (and sometimes nights, too) in social work.

“She is a very caring and dedicated hard worker. She is very organized and loves what she does. Her children are her priority and she works hard to ensure that they are safe and will have forever families.”

“If she could take every child in her caseload home with her, she would.”

“…her job does not stop at 5:00. She works long hours during the week, as well as on the weekends, to ensure that all her children’s needs are met.”

“She is always prompt and she always returns calls and texts in a timely manner.”

“She constantly puts herself second for the safety and wellbeing of our children.”

“He has been a great caseworker and a delight to work with. He always gets back to me. Always.”

“She is on call even when she isn’t and she is always available to answer any question we may have. If she does not know the answer, she will find it!”

“She takes the time to build relationships with families in her region.”

“He is honest and these girls will always come first in his eyes. He is truly is kind and caring! We love him!”

“She goes above and beyond in everything she does and DSS, foster families and children are fortunate to have her.”

“She is a delight to work with and is very attentive to all her foster families.  She is very responsive, always respectful and has a vast knowledge of licensing policy.”

“She always returns phone calls and texts regardless of the time of day or night.”

“We have been Foster Parents for several years and have had three long term children, a few short-term cases and MANY case workers assigned to them and he is the very best.”

“She truly advocates for our kids and does it with a smile on her face and love in her heart.”

“She works harder than anyone I know, but she always makes us feel like we are a priority.”

““If every caseworker was like her, we would always have everything we need for all the kiddos who come through our home!”

“She helps me with things that aren’t even her job.”

“He initiates communication, responds promptly and appears to comprehend details of our very complex case.”

“She is upbeat, professional, and caring.”

“She responds to texts, calls, and emails in a timely manner, and is a wonderful support to us as foster parents. I appreciate her so much!”

“When I need something from another department at DSS, she makes the connection and makes sure we have it. Priceless.”

“I am thankful for her advice and encouragement throughout our fostering journey. It definitely makes a difference when you feel supported.”

“He frequently voices his appreciation of our efforts to provide a safe and loving home for our foster child.”

“Dedicated.  Hard-working.  Loving.  Approachable.  Understanding.  Team Player.  Unselfish.”

“She made me feel valued as a foster mom and never made me feel like my questions were stupid or trivial.”

“She really cares about the children and goes out of her way to accommodate both foster and biological families.”

“She works tirelessly and gives unselfishly to ensure her children stay connected to siblings.” “I really appreciate her being our DSS worker.  I know how hard those caseworkers work and some days they feel defeated.  I will continue to pray for them.”

We want to say a BIG thank you to everyone who chooses a career path of social work. Very thankful for you. Thank you for the way you keep going when things are hard and thank you for caring enough to do the right thing for the children and families you serve. We support you.
