I am officially a conservatorship caseworker for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, assuming the title CPS Specialist II. While completing my last few weeks of the CPS training academy, I was offered and accepted a CVS position in Dallas county. My career is now centered around protecting children from abuse, neglect, and exploitation by involving clients, families, and communities. I advocate for children and their families by providing and arranging for services necessary to prevent abuse or alleviate maltreatment, as well as making referrals to other service providers and outside resources. My role within this agency is to ensure that every child is afforded the opportunity to achieve safety, well-being, and permanency, while promoting family preservation or reunification. I am so appreciative of the staff of the Social Work Program at Texas Woman's University for preparing and equipping me with adequate knowledge, skills, resources, and support to be both an effective and efficient social worker. overcoming obstacles encountered within this profession. I would like to encourage students to consider the Title IV-E program. It is such a rewarding experience.
