My role as a CPS CVS-worker is to provide Child Protective Services to children in substitute care. CVS refers to conservatorship as CPS is the managing conservator also known as guardians for children in substitute/foster care. This is an exciting position where there is truly never a dull moment. The direct work with children and their families is meaningful and uses those skills introduced through the Social Work Program. As we have transitioned from interns to workers I have come to understand how our role as the worker connects children and families to laws and policies that affect their lives daily. CPS is a world all its own and I'm glad to be a part.
