Pros: i loved what i did, i was there at night do paper work, and fileing out forms so they got what they needed, when every one else had gone home.
Cons: i was only allowed to work so may hours, and they stopped me from stay to late to complete, my work.
I did groups, I brought people in from the community to do groups. Social Security. Food Stamp Reps, to explain how their services work for our clients. I had been trained to be a Peer Support Specialist. A client trained to work with the clients. Plus I have two degrees in Social Work. I found people homes, I did intakes, and just provided support – more... for them to just talk, when they need someone. I always kept them connected to outside resources, and made sure they had what they needed. I also worked with their Case Workers, Doctors, and outside resources. – less
