I interned at 'r kids in Sept 2009 to June 2010 while going to school for my Masters in Social Work. I was welcomed with open arms on my very first day and quickly became a part of the 'r kids family. I learned so much from each of the case workers and worked with each one on different cases. I especially worked closely with Melanie who is such an inspiration when working with clients and being understanding toward their situation. Enna and Anushka were always a huge help when I was stumped and needed someone to run ideas by. Anne was always very supportive throughout my internship and made it comfortable to go to her for any issues. Being at 'r kids was such a great experience for me and I am always thankful that I was able to intern there. The ladies are so warm and caring and the agency is so family oriented that it just makes it so comfortable for families to go there for help. 'r kids always thinks of their clients first and always want to do the best for them all, even past clients. It was such an inspiration to be surrounded by all these ladies that are making such a difference in the community.
