Intern, Development Department (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 11, 2015
I helped them with fundraising events, non-fundraising events and operations maintenance. For the last two months, I was assigned to assist the Operations Manager with long-term Raiser's Edge management and some short-term Excel projects.
I helped her organize the Raiser's Edge database, inputed or changed some records in the system. The work helped me to learn more about Raiser's Edge, and I became more and more good at it.
This experience made me realize that I am really good at database management and data input & analysis.

I learned a lot about evidence based practices within school settings. Everyone is very nice and engaging. I did not meet one person that did not enjoy what they were doing. The most enjoyable part was working with children at the elementary school along with team members that were working together for the better of each client and their family.
Counselor (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – May 16, 2016
A typical day at CBNO can be very rewarding and challenging..rewarding because you have a chance to work with individuals impacted by trauma; but challenging because so many families are impact by grief and loss. The employees are very support and provide great clinical judgment when needed.

I had a great time doing volunteer work at the childrens bureau, it was very productive with good professional staff. The experience within itself was great I enjoyed being able to set up events for the families and to participate in every event. The hardest part was actually setting up each event and making sure everything was done correctly.
Social Work Intern (Former Employee) – Muncie, IN – August 27, 2013
This position gave me the opportunity to not only interact with clients in the field who were in danger of Child Protective Services stepping in, but it also gave me the opportunity to interact on a daily basis with other case managers within the agency, as well as other Social Service agencies, and daily meetings and interaction with the director. The hardest part of the job was working with clients who were resistant and non-compliant. This taught me a lot about self care so as not to carry my work home with me. I love home based case management, as well as crisis intervention. I look forward to getting back into the field as soon as possible.
assist in giving clients the needed tools for change
finding creative ways to motivate clients to engage in the change process.
The best place to work in NOLA if you are a social worker!!!
Clinical Social Worker (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – December 8, 2012
Children's Bureau is a warm, friendly and inviting agency that encourages employees to meet career goals and advancement. Their evidenced based model proves to be top notch in the human service field. Sadly, I had to move from the area and therefore, needed to find new employment otherwise, I would have stayed with Children's Bureau throughout my career!
warm, friendly and inviting agency. almost like family.
Package Preparer (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 19, 2014
I loved doing community service in high school so this was such a great experience! Being able to help the needy was so fun and beneficial to me. Having the opportunity to encourage the less fortunate gave me appreciation of everything I had in my own life. Hearing all of those people tell me thank you for your encouraging words and showing gratitude was way more better than receiving money. This job taught me that I should never take anything for granted and also have enough courage to help people through their difficult times. My managers and coworkers could notice how much of a positive impact I had in the homeless community and they always took pride by having me on their team. the hardest part about working with the children's bureau was seeing the homeless in such bad times. the best part was seeing the homeless's faces when they received their survivor's kit!
