Naomi Watson of our Montgomery County office has really exuded the ‘Whatever It Takes’ mentality that JusticeWorks is founded on. On her weekend off, one of Naomi’s clients was evicted from her family home along with her two young children and newborn infant. Naomi promptly went and picked the family up and took them to get something to eat and discuss what happened. Naomi was able to get the mother to open up and tell the truth about what happened. After comforting the family, Naomi went back with them to their family home where she facilitated a meeting between Mom and Grand mom and was able to get them to open about their argument, getting to the root of the issue being Grand mom’s frustration with her daughter. Naomi helped the family come up with a plan to address the concerns that Grand mom had for her daughter and grandchildren, she allowed them back into the home and admitted she never wanted to kick them out in the first place, but had just been frustrated and at a loss of what else to do. Naomi then discussed getting a Family Group Decision Making planned with the Caseworker for the family in order to make sure everyone is up to date with expectations and come up with a plan on how to accomplish each task. Clearly Naomi’s hard work and determination prevented the situation from getting worse, and led to a positive outcome. JusticeWorks is truly thankful for all of the hard work Naomi puts towards her cases.
Thank you, Naomi, for going above the call of duty to assist this family. Your compassion and professionalism produced a successful outcome for all involved.
