Interview With A Social Service Manager

864 words - 3 pages

It is Friday afternoon and I am walking from the bus station towards Dunkin Donuts to meet Regina Borden, the program coordinator of healthy family services of the Catholic Charity. I see white Toyota pulling up in front of me. Behind the steering wheel I see women in her fifties waiving her hand on me very warmly. I new it is her, Regina Borden, the person I am waiting for. Quite short, thin lady with a blond curly hair got out of the car. She walks towards me and shakes my hand.

"I have always known what I want to do already at the university, where I was involved in many activities like assisting professors with a psychology researches, or assisting private psychologists in the hospitals"

She characterizes herself as a leader in all the organizations but not in traditional sense. She more relates to workers.

"I am a working man's boss in a meaning that I still have an attitude of a working person." Says Borden.

As a program coordinator of healthy family services of the Catholic Charity she oversees five people who are involved with actual direct care while she works with them on one on one supervision and discuss the actual case. She is also most likely involved with an administration work like developing policies and...
