Marie Paul and Lew Clark

Kudos to Marie Paul and Lew Clark:
A mother whose case was closing after a successful reunification called to say how grateful she was for the help she received from case management, specifically Marie and Lew.
In the message, she stated “I really appreciate Marie being my caseworker, she was an awesome caseworker. She would get on me when I wasn’t doing what I was supposed to do and was good to me when I did what I was supposed to do. She is an awesome, awesome caseworker! She has consideration for the mothers and kids and wants the mothers and the kids to be reunited. She has helped me to be a better mother. Thank you for putting her on my case.”
She also thanked Lew for all of his help and said, “You helped me when no one else would help. I really appreciate that you helped get me into all of my services. Thank you with all my heart for helping me reunite with my daughter.”
Thank you so much Marie and Lew for your dedication to the children and families we serve!

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to inform your organization of a wonderful experience our family had with your group, and especially one of your employees, Brittany Ulrich. During a difficult time in the family, she was the light at the end of the tunnel in our time of crisis.

Brittany helped to facilitate our relationship back with our daughter, and with her three children (our grandchildren). Her weekly visits were always positive, constructive, and she was a good counselor, too! She is excellent with children, and she talked with them easily and made them feel relaxed. Brittany always had a kind word and gave us encouragement in our path back to a happy family. With her assistance, the family is doing wonderful, the children are feeling secure, and we are forever grateful for the services provided with Children’s Network and Ms. Brittany Ulrich!

Good morning Sherrie,

I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to express my gratitude to you and your team, specifically to Josue and Mario. Mario changed the lightbulb I had submitted a ticket from and came basically the next day. Josue assisted Angela in adding/creating groups needed to send certain emails for ITR purposes. They may be little things, but it makes a huge difference to me and I am very grateful. Kudos to them 😊
