Epworth Fostering Agency was introduced to us when we had a change of Social Worker from a Foster Care Officer (Ministry of Social & Family Development [MSF]) to Ms Sarah Wong (MCYC) in September 2015. This was when we found out that Epworth Community Services is not just a place or an organisation but offered extensive services such as counselling, conducting of parenting programmes and a place where you can seek help or advise.
Ms Sarah is a dedicated and approachable social worker whom I can count on when I needed a listening ear. The regular home visits conducted helped to build a stronger relationship between us. When we are faced with urgent issues, we would usually get a very quick response from her. It is very reassuring as a foster parent to know that she is always there for us. She would also constantly remind us to attend trainings whenever possible or when there are scheduled parenting trainings/ workshops. We have benefited from attending these workshops by MSF and we now know how to better manage these tricky situations.
It helps that we can always get the necessary help from our officers as it makes us feel supported as a foster parent. We are glad to be associated with Epworth Community Services and we truly appreciate their service to us and the community.”
