Congratulations! Michelle Staples from the Cape May Local Office is the DYFS Caseworker of the Month for December.
Michelle was nominated by Connie Weidner who had many wonderful things to say about her commitment to the children of Cape May County and her great example of working collaboratively with CASA. Connie states that Michelle worked diligently to ensure 3 older brothers in separate placements had regular sibling visits every 6 weeks. She also provided them with her cell phone # in case they needed to talk and she would bring the children together to meet with CASA if needed. In fact Connie reported that one of the children actually cried when he heard that Michelle was being transferred to a new unit and would no longer be his caseworker. In addition, Michelle always responded quickly to CASA’s needs and was prompt to return phone calls. We thank her for all her efforts and her continued hard work and dedication!
