Welcome from the Social Worker
Welcome! As the school social worker at Holy Family Cristo Rey Catholic High School, my mission is to provide support to the scholars, families and staff in an effort to alleviate any barriers that would hinder academic and overall achievement for our scholars. It is important that they thrive socially, emotionally, mentally and behaviorally to reach their full potential. The support services I provide target these areas of need. It is also my goal to provide support by linking our families to community resources to ensure all needs of the scholars are met.
