Staff Testimonial

What makes Child & Family a special place to work? The simple answer is the people: the dedicated group of professionals who have made the choice to work for a health and human service agency that serves their communities and the people who live in them. Child & Family was established in 1866 to support the children and families of Newport County. Over the years they have expanded to servicing all of Rhode Island, from those as young as 6-weeks-old, to the other end of the lifespan with clients that are over 100-years-young!

Brenna Berglund, Performance, Quality & Improvement Supervisor

Approaching my 3-year anniversary at Child & Family, I couldn’t be prouder of my contribution or more thankful for the opportunity! Though I came to the agency without a background in direct service or social work, I am able to use my skills and strengths to support my colleagues who work with the community, and to advance the agency’s mission. Each workday feels like a success, knowing I helped someone to help someone else.
