The Priority to Combat Staff Turnover in Social Services

A little less than 20 years ago, almost to the day, I received a call that would unknowingly launch a 13-year career in child welfare services.

A little less than 20 years ago, almost to the day, I received a call that would unknowingly launch a 13-year career in child welfare services. That's quite a remarkable tenure considering that when the organization called me for the interview, I couldn't even remember who they were and when I applied. I had just graduated from college, and with student loans coming due, I needed a job. So much so that I applied for a host of jobs in sort of a shotgun manner, hoping one would stick before the first payment came due. As I found out after I arrived, that job would involve serving as a Teacher/Counselor in a cottage of emotionally disturbed youth in a residential setting. I accepted the challenge.
