TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF AND WHAT YOU DO.
“I work for a community behavioral health and support organization in Colorado as a home visitor and parent support provider. I go to families’ homes to provide parents with support and skills on how to interact with their children in a positive way and how to keep their home safe for their child.”
TELL US WHY YOUR WORK MATTERS…
“My work serves as an early intervention that helps prevent child maltreatment and I provide parents with good ways to bond with their children and learn new skills to better care for their children while keeping them safe. And the more families we work with, the better it is for all of us.”
WHAT UNIQUE PERSPECTIVES DO DREAMERS BRING TO THEIR WORK?
“I am bilingual, and I have a degree in social work – both of which are relevant in my job. Many of the families I work with have immigrant backgrounds and I am able to provide them a sense of ease.”
