Conservatorship Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lubbock, TXJune 20, 2018
(When a child is removed from their home, the court appoints Child Protective Services to be a "Conservator" of the child.  CPS is legally responsible for the child's welfare and that is when a Conservatorship (CVS) caseworker comes in.  A CVS caseworker monitors children's care while they are in CPS conservatorship. This means working with the parents, extended family, and legal parties help children find a permanent, safe place to live.  Duties include but are not limited to arranging for additional testing, evaluations, records, or further assessments, conducting home studies of family members or family friends (kinship providers) who might care for the child, participating in court hearings. This includes preparing a family before the hearings, preparing court reports, and testifying in court about the child’s needs, the family’s progress, and the department’s efforts to achieve permanency for the child and documenting casework activity.)

Helping kids is rewarding
