    Alicia Jones, Senior Billing Specialist

    “It takes a special kind of person to work for a non-profit. You need to care about the mission and know that every job here supports our community. I grew up with both parents working, and we depended on the services offered from organizations like Child & Family. After 21 years, the people I work with are my family.”

    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.
