Dear Mr. Roberts,
I would like to apply for your Family Advocate position with Parkvale Health Center. I am a mental health professional with more than nine years of experience working with children and families.
As a Family Advocate with Kids First Counseling I act as a liaison between families and the court system as well as providing counseling to both children individually and families as a unit. I am well-versed in group counseling techniques and child development. In addition I am familiar with family law and have an in-depth knowledge of community agencies and referral networks. My approachable personality and calm demeanor lend themselves well toward gaining the trust of the families with whom I work. I have been told that I am a trusted resource. I would be happy to have the opportunity to contribute these qualities as a Family Advocate with Parkvale Health Center.
I am confident that my expertise in counseling and family dynamics would make me an asset to your team. I welcome you to contact me when it is convenient for you to further discuss my qualifications for your Family Advocate position. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
Dear Mr. Grundy,
Reading your listing for a Victim Advocate I admit I was intrigued. I am a professional social worker who has performed in this capacity for a variety of departments as demonstrated on my resume.Though I graduated from Lincoln College with a MS in Social Work in 1983 school started in children’s services. As you can imagine this was an intense stressful and emotionally draining position.
For over a decade I was a victim advocate for abused and abandoned children that found themselves innocently trapped in the court and foster care system. Since my experiences have led to working in homeless shelters for men women and families. I was a member of the New York District Attorney’s Office acting as victim advocate and behavioral specialist and was part of the city’s education system in the same capacity.
My current responsibilities at Dayton Victim Advocate covers a lot of the duties listed in your post as well as several that I have an interest in exploring. I would love to come in and find out more. I am available for an interview at your convenience.
