Southeastern Community Action Partnership celebrates Women’s History Month. This month we will feature a few women in our agency who help advance our mission of community action. Our second feature is Crystal Boston, who works as a FESS/Cares Case Manager in Hoke County, and we asked Crystal why she chose the field of community action?
In the words of Crystal Boston, FESS/Cares Case Manager, Hoke County
Working as a Case Manager for Southeastern Community Action Partnership allows me to have a direct, positive impact on the welfare of vulnerable people in my immediate community. Every day, I am able to potentially see the manifestation of my work and how commitment, empathy and compassion can change one’s life immediately.
My life’s commitment has always been to use my knowledge, time and resources to pour into others that feel unheard, unseen and disengaged, as I too have experienced these feelings. Working in the field of self-sufficiency programs for over 20 years has been absolutely rewarding and enlightening. I believe this quote by Jana Stanfield sums up my outlook on being a case manager for a community action program “I cannot do all the good that the world needs. But the world needs all the good I can do.”
