Letter from a Berks County CYS Case Manager:
Hope all is well. I just wanted to let you know that I was in contact with the father (of one of our mutual clients) today because he voiced to Zach (JWYC employee) that he didn’t want the case closed. When I talked to the father he informed me how comfortable his family felt with Zach and that they noticed a changed in the older son, ‘Max’ since Zach has been working with the family. They asked me if Zach could continue working with the family for a little longer. I had to gently explain to them that although I loved that they were able to develop a great rapport with the provider I would still have to close out the case due to there being no concerns with child abuse and/or neglect. The family understood. Every now and then it is nice to hear the good things and how much of an influence you can make on a family. Even if it was a short time working with the family they obviously had a good experience, its clients like that that keeps you motivated.
Thank you for your awesome work Zach, it was nice working with you. Hopefully I can meet you one day so that I can put your face to your name.
