Kim Daulton

Social Worker Superhero: A Day in My Life

Every day I wake up, put on my tattered social worker cape, and make decisions about children and families' lives. How can we save this young woman's housing? How do we keep this little boy safe? How do I get this teenager to invest in her education? How do I find a patient loving family to keep these siblings forever? I will tell you their stories and tell you how you can help. After all, it can take just one person to change a child's life.
