it's a tough job.

Hey team-love!

I've worked in the Social Service industry for nearly 5 years, and have volunteered with it in one way or another for the past 10. What I'm getting at is that I've worked with a lot of Case Workers. (You may know them as Social Workers.) Wow.. now that's a tough job. 

I work with Case Workers every day who have anywhere from 15 to 37 kids on their case-load. Essentially, their job is to parent, nurse, counsel, support, challenge, discipline, care for, encourage, drive places, pay for, motivate, listen to, advocate for, .... the list goes on. 

A lot of the kids struggle with mental health issues.
They all come from broken homes.
Most have been abused in so many ways. 

And a Case Worker's job is to meet these kids needs at every possible turn. 

They work within a huge and challenging system and they come up against barriers daily while they're trying to advocate for their 'kiddos'. 

It's a tall order and no matter what your experience with different Case Workers, they deserve support and love.

Come on team, let's send some love their way.
While they cheer on their kids, let's give them a cheer too!!

Keep up the good work!!
