In your job, have you helped a family affected by violence? We are seeking your story of working with a family, what you did, and the positive change that resulted from your work with them.
We want to gather information and stories based on the experiences of social service workers such as yourself and highlight examples of the positive impact that social service workers make every day. Using a storytelling approach puts you, the service provider, at the center of the story. The aim of this project is to feature your voice telling your story about your work and how you have accomplished it. We want more people to be able to learn directly from your point of view about what has helped you do the good work you do, how you have accomplished it and the difference you have made in the lives of those affected by violence and family separation. Then, by looking across the collective of all of the stories, we may begin to see patterns that will allow us all to be better able to suggest practical interventions to strengthen or support the workforce and good practices and organizational factors that result in positive outcomes for children and families. And by bringing our voices together, we can increase the visibility of the important work you do.
