A few years ago Polk County Department of Corrections offered the opportunity for interested community members to help support those on probation or newly released individuals. I was part of a team that weekly met with two or three individuals.
This experience helped me fine tune my listening skills.
Since its inception, I have been a supporter of Voice to Be Heard, an organization giving support to those who have loved ones incarcerated.
I have given a presentation on the Affordable Health Care Act in addition to seeking support.
During the 10 years that the Annie E. Casey Foundation was active in Des Moines through Making Connections, I received countless hours of training and was allowed to use these skills locally and across the United States.
The area of concentration I worked with was the Family Self Sufficiency. We worked with individuals throughout the community with increasing their assets and sharing their wealth.
This experience connected me to people throughout the United States who held the same beliefs - people had the answers to resolve their challenges. It was through this experience that I realized the value and skills of each person.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work degree.
