“When I first moved to Greenfield, this was the first asset I found, and it really took me, and I was able to branch out to other community resources. This was like my steppingstone.” - Caregiver

Deirdre, one of our Home Visitors, says, “I like my job because I enjoy supporting families in their parenting journey. I love building relationships with families and working together to achieve a goal. It is very satisfying to share this accomplishment with the family. I enjoy going to the homes of families and seeing the faces of the children I work with open the door and smile and be excited to see me. I like building up the confidence of parents and showing them all the positive ways that they are helping their children.”
