Social Work

Our Social Work Program

Edgar’s role changes daily. His main task is working with our adult population and, through conversation, Edgar begins to discover some of the needs our guests have. With this information, he is able to provide help internally as well as make appropriate referrals to other agencies using various platforms.

Annual Social Work Outreach

The Annual Resource Fair is a family-fun event that brings agencies from around Rochester to the Lyell-Otis neighborhood. Families are introduced to new programs, while kids play games and win prizes. The event sees over 100 attendees, and we plan on making it larger each year. We’re proud to have convened this event for neighbors.

Community Baby Shower

The Baby Shower is for expecting women in our area who otherwise might not have a chance to have a shower. The goal is to help the women connect with other women and share stories as well as play shower games and leave with a basket full of baby items. The event partners with other agencies who present their services focused on pregnant women and children ie. Baby Safe Sleep Coalition etc…

Cultural Competency & Health Literacy

Cultural Competency and Health Literacy (CCHL) is an initiative created by Finger Lakes Provider Performance System (FLPPS). Under this, the agency assigns a “champion” and a committee is formed. Edgar heads the committee as the Champion. The committee meets monthly with the goal of bringing cultural awareness to the staff members, board, and guests. Furthermore, with this initiative, the committee works together to brainstorm ideas on making sure our community members and guests have a voice at the table when it comes to the programs and services they want to see at Cameron.

Take Action

We can’t do this alone! YOUR support is imperative to the success of our organization.
