We are very pleased to announce the following new additions to the America World team. LeAnne Craig, MSW of Cumming, GA was hired in January as our Director of Social Services for AWAA-GA. LeAnne comes to us with an extensive background in adoption social services. Her experience includes conducting home studies, as well as providing adoption support and training to families. Our Georgia office is in the process of becoming licensed to do home studies and should be operating in the next several months.
Emily Head, MSW of Leesville, SC was hired in May to be our Director of Social Services for AWAA-SC. She will spend her first few months helping us get licensed to do home studies in South Carolina. Emily has over 6 years experience working in the adoption field, which includes conducting home studies, providing adoption counseling and training, and completing licensing requirements for an adoption agency. We anticipate the South Carolina office to be licensed by the end of this year.
We look forward to these two offices opening and being able to serve our GA and SC families by providing their home study services. Please stay tuned for more information to come.
