DSS, Community Resource Division
I am a Community Resource Division (CRD) Social Worker for the Department of Social Services. My current role as a Community Social Worker allows me to protect the safety and well-being of children by focusing on family needs or barriers to becoming more self-sufficient.
With the financial support of programs such as the DSS Housing Subsidy Program and Charlotte Housing Authority Family Reunification Program, families are given the opportunity to increase their income and savings, and improve their circumstances in order to remove barriers to self-sufficiency.
My position in CRD allows me to work with families on a more intimate and direct level where I am able to problem-solve with the family and assist with developing and achieving financial, personal, and educational goals. In the long term, the aim is to increase the family support system/resources, and to provide for the ongoing safety and well-being of the child.
