Steven Stewart

1.     My favorite part of my job at Boys & Girls Homes:

Anytime I can spend engaging with the children here. Each child is unique. Developing a relationship with a child and then learning their individual wants and needs, and helping them on their path, makes my day.


2.     What are some changes I have seen in my time here:

Every new day brings us opportunities for growth and change. A more recent change would be in management, however, the addition of case managers and a program manager has been a great direction for us in client support and there has been a focus on identifying and meeting the therapeutic needs of the children. “Relate Strong” is the next first step in moving us forward in relationship building with the children.


3.     What makes Boys and Girls Homes special to me:

My Team:

There is always support, encouragement, and a shared belief in the mission and values of B&GH within the team I work with. There are strong and passionate people who seek the best way to support the children, the staff and each other.
