Staff Testimonials

Why we have amazing families as told by our Family Specialist, Jennifer Crawley

We have an AMAZING family, because they have always been an advocate for children who have been placed in their home. They don’t see the children for the circumstance, but their goals is to give them the most love and affection and teaching while in their care.

They have been on a journey to find a child a forever home, and will so be blessed with the opportunity to do so. Although adoption has be…en their goal they never stopped at the chance of helping other children in need. I had the chance to speak to them and asked them “at what moment did they know their princess was the one for them?” and they shared “instantly, once we laid eyes on her we knew she would be a part of our family!” it has been a long journey for them but each moment of helping kids and providing their little girl with a forever home has made everything worth it.

I have never had to ask anything more of them because they have always seem to go over and beyond advocating, reaching out to case worker, staying on top of each child needs, and making sure once they left they knew that if no other time, they were loved while in their home.

This is why they are AMAZING!!

I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of our wonderful foster providers and developmental home providers for their tireless commitment to the children and adults they serve.  A Place to Call Home has the best providers out there and it is not said often enough just how much you are all appreciated.  A Place to Call Home is thankful for all of you and having the privilege and honor to be your licensing agency and share in this remarkable journey with you.   Every day I hear of stories from our Family Specialists, Behavioral Specialists, Trainers and other staff who share your accomplishments, sacrifices, compassion and heartbreak and each new story I hear just reminds me more and more of why I am so thankful to work with such dedicated staff and families.  Thank you for all that you do and will continue to do for children and adults in need.  Liz Mehnert, Executive Director
