Social Service Workers Honored

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – Social Service workers were honored recently at an employee appreciation reception hosted by the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Board of Social Services, the Colonial Heights Federated Woman’s Club and the Worthington Woman’s Club chapter of the General Federation of Women's Clubs.

"Social Services employees are dedicated to serving the most vulnerable of our citizens. Additionally, they are known around the commonwealth as some of the most innovative and committed individuals, while maintaining exceptionally high caseloads. Their care and concern for all is evident and we are very fortunate that they are serving this community and Colonial Heights. They are one more example of the valuable and extraordinary individuals that Chesterfield has the fortune of having as employees," County Administrator James J.L. Stegmaier said.

Indeed, the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Social Services Department ranks fourth in what Commissioner Martin D. Brown, Virginia Department of Social Services, recently announced as the VDSS Sweet 15 for Benefit Programs. Chesterfield-Colonial Heights was the only Level III agency in Central Virginia on the VDSS Sweet 15 list.

"Given the increased needs of citizens in the current economic climate and the difficulty many citizens have faced in obtaining employment, the high quality of work that Social Services staff continues to accomplish in this environment of historically high caseloads is remarkable. Employees continue to think innovatively about the delivery of services, even as demand increases," Marsha L. Sharpe, director of the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Department of Social Services, said.
