Reviews

Family Service Coordinator

August 2018 Fremont, CA
“I work with formerly homeless children and families in an affordable housing apartment. I lead biweekly homework club with tutors. After the kids are done with their homework we do art projects. I do event planning for monthly birthday celebrations, STEM classes, and field trips. This Wednesday I am taking the children on a field trip to watch the Warriors game, thanks to the Klay Thompson Foundation. I write case notes and do home visits.”
