An awesome program that gives our children a Head Start in life. The Head Start children are overall great students when they leave our program.
Family Case Manager (Current Employee) – South Boston, VA – August 16, 2012
A typical day begins with a follow-up from the previous day. I complete what was not completed. I work on documenting any parent contact in files. I work on updating information that has occur ex. home visit log or any notes sent home to parents. I learned by updating my information constantly, I dont have to do it at the end of the month. therefore, my monthly and quarterly reports are easy to produce because the information is there. I make calls to setup home visits, make follow-up calls from home visits and calls due to unexcused absences.The management has taught me to always be prepared when asked for information pertaining to my case load.I have co-workers who are team players. When we are given an assignment, we all work together as a team to get the job done. The hardest part of my job is not having enough time in the day to help those in need. The most enjoyable part of my job is when a parents or parents have achieved a sense of self reliance. This makes me feel I had a hand in changing someone's circle of depending on public assistance.I feel my work is not in vain. I love helping people!!!
my job is very flexible when i have dr.'s appts., or if i need to attend my son's iep meeting or time off.
we only have 30 minutes for lunch.
