ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- Sarah Grubbs, a dependency case manager in St. Lucie County, was awarded the United for Families Case Manager of the Quarter award Dec. 7 during a community training to help child-welfare staff manage stress.

"I was excited to win the Case Manager of the Quarter award," said Ms. Grubbs, who became a case manager in 2011. "My unit is so supportive, and we have amazing direction and support. I could not always stay as positive as I have without my co-workers."

Ms. Grubbs was nominated by her peers and received a $250 bonus. She is now in the running for the 2013 Case Manager of the Year award, which will be announced March 2 at United for Families' "Le Bal Masque in the Black Forest" event.

Ms. Grubbs joins Brian Razin, a dependency case manager in St. Lucie County, Caryn Toole of Indian River County and Alyson Posey of Martin County, as those who will be recognized during Le Bal Masque.

"It is a pleasure to work with Sarah," said Sherina Johnson, her supervisor.

"We share a common goal to ensure the safety of children and to empower the families we serve. Sarah takes pride in her work and is always willing to take that extra step to ensure her families have what they need."

United for Families is the community based care agency that coordinates and oversees child-welfare services in St. Lucie, Martin, Indian River and Okeechobee counties.

The award was created to recognize and better support the efforts of dependency case managers, who coordinate services for children in the dependency court system.

The award has become the centerpiece of United for Families' program to train and retain quality social workers and stabilize the child-welfare system for children.
