Case Manager, Youth and Family Alternatives (Manatee)
Children Coalition for just over a year and her dedication and passion for working with her families is inspiring to any new case manager. Even though she has a high caseload, she is not only able to ensure all of her own responsibilities are completed but is also always willing to assist her co workers when needed.
Guadalupe thinks of the children on her case load as her own, and they relate to her as a second mother. She sees past the challenges and darkness we encounter in child welfare and embraces a light of hope that the children she serves will be raised in stable homes.
Guadalupe is a meticulous planner, organizational whiz, and part-time undercover detective. She is excited by the role she plays in uncovering crucial evidence and carefully documenting details that can lead to children going to a safe environment.
You won’t see Guadalupe bored. She likes that each day is different, with each case calling for different skills and bringing unexpected challenges each week.
A challenge Guadalupe is not up for? Cooking—it’s her least favorite household chore.
Thank you for your dedication to our children and families, Guadalupe!
