My name is Crystal. In 2009, I was attending Cal State University-Stanislaus, working on my Master’s degree in Social Work, when I started working part-time at the Children’s Home of Stockton while I was in school.

In addition to working part-time, I decided to do my Master’s degree Internship under the guidance of the Lead Clinical Program Manager for the Delta Cottage Program. The Internship program at CHS is comprehensive, challenging, and was an experience that helped me grow as a Social Worker.

Through the Internship, I learned the various aspects of the Child Welfare system which has proven to be useful in my current position as a foster family social worker and I believe would be useful in any social service position.
