Typical? A lot of housekeeping duties and paperwork with a spattering of crisis and violence.

Every day is different in my position; my role and responsibilities vary depending on the needs of the individual or group I am supporting. A typical day would involve: some one on one appointments with youth to assist them in acquiring housing, employment, or re-integration to school while providing them emotional support and basic daily needs; visiting schools and supporting administrative staff with their informational or referral needs; facilitating outreach on the street, in the youth centre and other places/spaces frequented by youth; facilitating a weekly life skills group; attending various community service provider staff and committee meetings.

Somedays are a non stop kaleidoscope of drama, verbal abuse, "street business" being dragged inside the building, people in crisis, people high on various substances, psychotic episodes, people with no hope who desperately want help that we don't have the resources to provide. Other days are calm and are days when what you think is a small thing or a few words, or a listening ear makes the world of difference to someone.

Every day is different, it shifts between completing client records, reports, attending meetings, advocating for individuals, providing parenting support strategies, and working individually with the child or youth. The hours vary yet the main times I will see clients are after school hours, between 3pm-8pm.

There is lots of variety in the work I do so there isn't really a typical day: I can be meeting foster parents and MCFD staff in a partnership meeting; facilitating training's to foster parents and prospective foster parents; supporting a foster parent one to one in a support meeting or protocol investigation; attending supervisory meetings, staff meetings, etc. It is never a dull day!
