What I Wish I Had Known/What I Wish They Knew
Guest: Rosie Shields, Faith-Based Specialist with CPS.
As Christians we are called to care for vulnerable children, in this episode we get to hear from Rosie Shields, Faith Based & Community Engagement Specialist DFPS, she shares with us what she wishes the Church knew about working with and caring for vulnerable children. She lays out easy ways that believers and churches can come along side CPS in caring for these children and families.
Rosie has a passion for Social Work. She has a bachelor’s degree from Jackson State University and master’s degree from The University of Texas at Arlington both in social work. Rosie has been serving families through The Department of Family and Protective Services for about 4 years now in her current role as a Faith Based Specialist. She serves 9 counties in the DFW Area. As a part of the Faith Based & Community Engagement Team, Rosie works to bridge the gap between the Faith community and CPS. She goes out into the community to create partnerships and advocate for resources for CPS clients. Rosie’s mission is to work alongside churches and faith organizations to develop ministries that will support children, families, and caseworkers. Rosie is a powerhouse to be reckoned with in the workforce and she uses her positive attitude, as well as southern flare, to encourage others to be the change that the community needs to make a difference in the lives of CPS families.
