Success Stories

Tammy Grant Caseworker

Kinship caseworker Tammy Grant helps families thrive. For her kinship caregivers, which are often grandparents, aunts or uncles caring for their relatives’ children, Grant figures out what they need and makes it happen. One of Grant’s most memorable experiences was working with Johnny, a single father who was struggling to provide for himself and his son. Grant linked him to community resources and he was able to find proper child care and safe housing. Grant says that Johnny still calls her occasionally to say, “I wanted to let you know we’re doing okay. Thank you.” For Grant, this is what it is all about: “These moments are why I keep doing this job,” she says.
