The heart of our work

Erica Slocum, Bartow County DFCS

Holly Kane, Social Services Supervisor for Bartow County DFCS in Cartersville, GA, says Erica Slocum is a great employee!

Holly writes:

Erica is the kind of person you…

  • Go to if you need advice from someone whom you know has had this case before
  • Go to if you need direction on a case 
  • Go to if you need a phone or fax number 
  • Go to if you need to share a story or how court went 
  • Go to if you need to vent 
  • Go to if you just want to talk

But most of all, Erica recently went above and beyond the call of duty on a case where two children desperately needed a permanent home. Erica, who was not even working on the case, took it upon herself to call relatives to find out if they were interested in taking these two children into their home. Luckily, the family was receptive, or there was a possibility that these boys would not have been placed with family.
Thanks to Erica, these two children will find permanency with family. The heart of our work. I am thankful that Erica never loses sight of the importance of family.
I not only respect Erica for the exceptional work she does on her own cases, but for all the other little things that may or may not go unnoticed that she does as well.
Erica is a wonderful part of Team Bartow and I thankful for her everyday.
