Hope For Youth


Cara has been a Hope for Youth employee since 2012. She is responsible for intake and admissions in the foster care, group home and diagnostic and emergency programs. In addition, she will be taking on a key role in Health Homes. She is a team player, and is able to work collaboratively with Hope for Youth staff and referral sources. Although utilization in the group home program had been below budgeted targets for some time, Cara continued to work diligently with Hope for Youth staff, referral sources and court personnel in order to highlight the agency’s programs, particularly the agency’s ability to work with substance involved youth. The recent strong utilization can be directly tied to her efforts. Because of these efforts and the many others that make up Cara’s day, she has been awarded Employee of the Month, June.
