JOHN P. East Carmel Drive? Aurora, Colorado ? H ? C ____________________________________________________________ CAREER OBJECTIVE To utilize my knowledge, skills, and experience in the human services field to be a steward of integrity as I provide service to members of society with the greatest need. PROFESSIONAL PROFILE Successful social caseworker with over years experience working in the field of child protection in Denver County. Case management/counseling in substance abuse. Resourcing for clients for housing, employment, mental health, and parental education. Experience includes finding referrals for all these client issues. A lifelong learner with strong interpersonal skills utilizing my ability to build lasting relationships with law enforcement, medical staff, school officials, foster care agencies, attorneys, and the juvenile court system. Many successful contacts in finding agencies that would provide services that would assist one family member or the entire family. CORE COMPETENCIES ? Negotiations ? Effective Mediation ? Public Speaking ? TraintheTrainer ?Training/Coaching ? Problem Solving ? Records Management ? Client Liaison ? Legal Advocacy SIGNIFICANT CAREER ACHIEVEMENTS Resourcing Assisted numerous clients who are involved in the juvenile court system to achieve court ordered treatment plans. For example, parents were often court ordered to obtain employment, housing, or to participate in counseling. It was my job to help the client achieve those goals. Found grandparents in Texas who did not know that their grandchild had been abandoned in Colorado. My employer purchased a plane ticket for me to transport the child to his relatives. This required a skill of asking a lot of the right questions. I obtained funding for a DNA test for an unmarried father whose fiance died giving birth before she could name him the father on the birth certificate. I was told by my supervisor that I did not have to take the case but I accepted the challenge and asked to allow me to find someway to help this young man. I was given approval and the young father was able obtain custody of his infant. Organization and Leadership Member of a select team that was requested by my employer to participate in a national pilot program that would combine Head Start Education with child care for a fee for low income families. Parents were able to leave children at the child care center for hours. The program was successful and is still operating at present in many Colorado counties. Along with Head Start Program, trained social workers, I was responsible for opening a new child care center that is still running. This task was a challenge because I had to find a vacant building in an area of town that was % residential. Coached, trained, and mentored new hires at Denver Human Services in interviewing, investigating, court report writing, and concepts of child protection. Provided information to new caseworkers on how to communicate with agencies that provide services for clients in need of mental health services, housing, employment, child care, parent education, or food stamps. Crises Intervention and Interviewing Many times I was called upon to respond to crisis situations on weekends and during evening hours. Frequently asked by supervisors to accompany one of their Caseworkers in dangerous situations which involved police intervention or an angry client. Interviewing clients while in crises is one of my strongest assets. Oftentimes, parents were distressed because their children had been removed, were injured, victims of a crime, or missing and I would have to gather information from them using tactful methods while remaining calm. I would often use these situations to train and mentor new hires. Developed immediate safety plans for children who were considered to be at imminent risk of further abuse or neglect, or injury. This often required experience, creativity, and quick thinking as no two situations were alike. Sensitivity and confidentiality were essential because many times people found themselves in a first time situation and they needed an objective person who will not over react to emotional events and keep their own emotions in check. Oftentimes, a family was suddenly homeless because of some tragedy from a fire, poverty, or gradual loss of income. It was my job to contact various agencies who were able to intervene and provided needed services. I found this part of my job very rewarding.
