My diverse work history helps me to see how organizations and community can work together to provide more opportunities for students and families, especially those who live in high poverty areas. I have had success in the past working in collaborative partnerships to see a need and work to meet it. For example, in 2001, while working at the Department of Family and Children Services, two of my co-workers and myself began a project to start a child advocacy center. Through a lot of collaboration with many partners in our community, the Pataula Center for Children began providing services to victims of child sexual abuse. Today the center is vital part of the Pataula Judicial Circuit and has served many children through the years. Another example is the work of the homeless committee. In 2017, as Homeless Liaison, I realized Early County was seeing an increase in the number of students identified as homeless. Working with the Family Connection Collaborative, we brought organizations and individuals together to plan a strategy to address the needs of homeless students and families in our communities. Many resources came to light and also programs stated to help families in these situations such as Neighbor to Neighbor, a program started by C Hope MInistries in Blakely. Another outcome was a housing committee that continues to work to improve housing in Blakely. They have been approved for Georgia Initiative for Community Housing and are working towards a plan to increase housing. I point to both of these examples as not something that I did alone, but to show the power of collaboration and how working together gets things done.
