The Courage of Caseworkers

Hagar Vietnam Caseworker with Reintegrated Client

I've been reminded recently of the extremely challenging work that Hagar social workers and counselors have to face. With limited resources, expertise, and staff, our case workers are sometimes called upon to do the impossible. Our Vietnam team has recently had to deal with runaway clients, a perpetrator who locked his wife in a cage upon coming out of jail, and a client suffering from severe panic attacks.  Then, calls regarding a girl who was raped and other urgent needs.  All of this is in addition to the other cases that need our attention.

I so admire all of caseworkers for their courage and their heart to do 'whatever it takes for as long as it takes' for the difficult cases that we support.
