The Baltimore County Department of Social Services, which oversees the Baltimore County Child Advocacy Center, recently completed a very successful agency accreditation.  Here are just some of the great comments they all received:

  • Strong professional staff, unparalleled across the county and a ‘jewel to appreciate’
  • Strong collaboration internally and with their community resources and partners
  • Passionate advocates for clients and services
  • Clear commitment to ethical practice
  • Support for client rights and serving clients with dignity and respect
  • Open door policy for Supervisors and Assistant Directors
  • Attention to the effects of trauma and secondary trauma
  • Remarkable family support and case aide staff
  • The mission statement is embodied in how they work, not by rote recitation
  • Strong and positive peer support and mentoring within the child welfare and adult services workforce

This is what we all strive for every day and it feels good when others notice. Congratulations to Krista, Mike and the whole team.
