JF&CS volunteer Susan Adams first learned about social work at a job fair in eighth grade. She decided that’s what she wanted to do when she grew up. But her journey took another road, leading to a career in software development, marriage, and full days raising two children. Now her path has come full circle as her volunteer work for Visiting Moms has led her to the career in social work that she always wanted.
“Software was interesting and challenging but not my calling,” said Susan. “Being a Visiting Mom was super satisfying. Being able to listen and make a difference to somebody. It’s so rewarding to help a mother at her neediest time in her life and to validate that person’s experience.”
