The Jubilee Clinic Social Work Program aims to assess safety and meet the needs of children and families in the Jubilee Blanc community. Each aspect of the program centers around ideals of protecting the family structure and ensuring child safety within their homes. Encompassing both the Infant Formula and Medika Mamba malnutrition programs, the Social Work aspect of Klinik Jubilee addresses the cycle of child malnutrition by providing caregiver education and resources to empower caregivers and parents to provide the best possible care for children in their homes.
Meet the clinic's Social Worker
In 2015 I moved to Gonaïves, Haiti, to begin teaching at Academie la Saline (Jubilee School). At the start of my second year teaching, I felt God beginning to lead me into a new role in Jubilee. It wasn’t long before I was clearly shown what that would be – Klinik Jubilee Social Worker. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work – specifically child welfare and global studies – and two years of experience in the field, I was in awe of God’s faithfulness to me, as He provided me an opportunity to step back into the work I’m passionate about, in the community I love.
My favorite thing about the social work program I began is that it focuses on relationship - creating and maintaining - which I believe is the key to actually creating change. I provide case by case counseling or connection to resources when needs arise, direct both of the clinics' malnutrition programs, offer classes and caregiver education to participants in those programs, and assist in planning and providing for children when, in the worst of situations, they are not safe to remain in their homes.This position allows me to do many things within the clinic, which I love, and assist whenever needs arise. I am excited to see how God continues to use me as the clinic grows!
