Dori Weeder, a social caseworker with Broomfield Health and Human Services in Broomfield, CO, is our August Caseworker of the Month.
Mary McKeeman, a foster care social worker for Hope 4 Kids in Orange County, California, was named our July Caseworker of the Month. McKeeman was nominated for matching a loving family with a little boy who’d lost faith in being adopted.
Linette Torrefranca, a social service clinician for the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services in Florence, KY, is our June Caseworker of the Month. By happenstance, she found a career fresh out of college as a social worker and has proved to be a steady, caring presence in the lives of both children and foster parents ever since.
Jennifer Cochran, a specialist for the Kentucky Department of Community Based Services Special Needs Adoption Program is our May Caseworker of the Month. Despite an increased workload because of budget cuts reducing the number of employees in her department, Cochran has remained fully committed to challenging caseworkers and parents to take a second look at families and children they might otherwise dismiss.
Melanie Prepetit, a clinical supervisor for the nonprofit agency Beech Brook in Cleveland, Ohio, is our April Caseworker of the Month. In addition to helping two brothers learn to deal with the twists and turns of life over the course of a 10-year relationship as their therapist, she assisted the boys' adoptive parents in strengthening their family by turning crisis moments into an opportunity for reinforcing the bonds of love and trust.
