DESCRIPTION OF WORK

Caseworkers provide an effort to facilitate growth, behavioral and emotional improvements to those individuals and their families, and to maintain current and accurate documentation and records of clients and services.

Caseworkers receive reports of suspected abuse and/or neglect of children within the county. They then meet with the children, caregivers and talk with anyone who can help determine if the child(ren) are safe.

Caseworkers recommend seeing a doctor if children are injured.

The most important thing is to be able to help a child, one who may not have the skills, knowledge or ability to help themselves.

Benefit packages are determined by the county and may vary. Please contact the applicable county human resource office directly to inquire about a specific benefit package.
