“The Child Center, Inc. means SO much to me. This is the place that really sparked my passion to work with children who’ve experienced trauma. When I was here as a student, I wasn’t aware about the amazing work, that was being done to ensure the safety and well-being of children, who’ve experienced trauma. I was amazed to see the bravery of the children and the support that was given to the kiddos and families. After completing my Bachelor’s degree practicum here, I knew I wanted to continue my education, to support children and families who’ve experienced trauma. I was constantly amazed to see how such a supportive environment, impacts a child and family. It is truly an honor and privilege to hear the story of a child and family. Anyone who knows me, knows, I’ve always wanted to work at a CAC, since I began my journey as a social worker. I can’t say enough how honored I am to be here!”
